Poor, poor Mr Hope...
2 July 2006 | by (www.martsander.com) – See all my reviews

Please don't watch this film. It's like a concentrate of what was bad in 1930s comedy. This absolutely ridiculous shorty can of course generate some interest as it is one of the very first pictures Bob Hope was in, but otherwise - and even to the absolute Hope fans - it's much better left undisturbed. Really makes you a bit uncomfortable and ashamed and you feel for Mr Hope - the road to stardom was obviously paved with bitter pills like this one that one had to swallow to get a real part in a real film. And to think this was done at the time, when there were comedies by Lubitch and Capra, elegant and witty films that were shot well. This mishmash is barely out of cheap burlesque, and not worth a look for any realistic reason. I think it took the "scriptwriters" less time to concoct this turkey than it takes us to watch it.
