Hugh Herbert as W.C. Fields
21 March 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Warner Brothers provides us with another one-hour B picture, with almost exactly the same plot as W.C. Field's THE MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE. Hugh Herbert is quite enjoyable in the lead, but I enjoy Hugh Herbert and his pixilated little men; his drunk scene with Hobart Cavanaugh is excellent. Dorothy Vaughn is fine as his shrew of a wife -- if you close your eyes, you may think you're listening to Marjorie Main. But Patricia Ellis is very stiff as the ingénue and the third act clearly rushes to make it through the end on the one-hour mark.

Completists should note that this is an early credit for Dalton Trumbo. Do not, however, expect any moments of drama or depth.
