How Charley Succeeds
24 February 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It Happened One Day finds young Charley Chase, a veritable Sammy Glick of the Thirties, getting hired by a firm headed by Oscar Apfel. Two problems with that, Apfel had some unpleasant run ins with the bumptious Chase. Chase even makes an offhanded comment about marrying the boss's daughter and the other employees immediately take it in their minds to put the upstart in his place.

Popular Chase leading lady Betty Mack is Apfel's daughter and on a train trip back from Long Beach the two of them meet and do fall for each other. Life does take some funny turns.

Chase was perfectly cast as a bumptious type. Thirty years later I could have seen him doing How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. This was one short which depended more on character than gags for laughs and Chase succeeded admirably.
