Nice Short from Kelly-Todd
6 November 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

One Horse Farmers (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Fun Hal Roach short has Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly playing friends stuck on a crowded subway. Kelly is charmed by a man who talks her into buying a home in the country, which he claims is Heaven on Earth. Soon the friends drive out there but the grass ends and it turns out that the house in on a sand trap. These Todd-Kelly shorts are always hit and miss but this one here turned out to be one of the better ones I've seen from the duo. There's certainly nothing ground breaking going on in this film but there are enough laughs to make it worth sitting through. There are several good scenes but one of the best happens at the end when the house the girl's are living in begins to blow back and forth due to some strong winds and this leads to an even better scene of all the neighbors being forced to come to the house because their own homes have been blown away. This entire sequence contains some nice imagination at work and makes for some good laughs. Another highlight happens on the train when Kelly goes to scratch her leg but ends up nailing into someone else's leg.
