A laugh out loud short
25 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly were a great comedy team. In this entry, they are poor (as usual) young women sharing a one room apartment. Instead of looking for a job, Thelma spends the day writing really awful poetry. Patsy's looks and comments while Thelma is reciting her poetry is priceless. Thelma insists that her poetry will make her rich and famous. Patsy disagrees and Thelma leaves in a huff. Patsy, while on her delivery girl job sees Thelma in a fur coat getting out of a limousine. She asks the driver where Thelma lives and he tells her that she lives in the penthouse at the Warwick Hotel. Patsy is amazed at how well Thema has done and decides to make a surprise visit on Thelma. When Patsy and two friends, Fuzzy and Gary, call on Thelma, she is highly dismayed for she is a maid at the penthouse not its owner. Thelma tries to get rid of them but they're having too much fun - the boys throwing paper water bombs at passersby and Patsy taking a bath in the fancy tub of the luxurious bathroom. Patsy is so pleased at this simple and unexpected pleasure that she gleefully calls a friend to tell her all about it - it's a great scene. Also very good was Fuzzy's rendition of a novelty song. I don't remember ever seeing Fuzzy Knight in anything but Westerns and his appearance here was refreshing. Plenty of laughs throughout and worthy of repeated viewings.
