Fun Chase short
3 August 2009 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Neighborhood House (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Charley Chase takes his wife and young daughter to the movies where it's Bank Night. The daughter is asked to draw the winning ticket for $500 and of course ends up picking her father's number, which makes everything think it's a scam. This Chase short comes from his period working for Hal Roach and it's a fairly good one even though the repeated jokes start to get old. The film opens up with a mildly funny sequence where Chase and his wife are trying to rush through dinner but of course things go wrong. Things don't get any better once they reach the theater and everyone feels they put the daughter up to cheating. The joke dealing with all the cheating gets repeated as more and more people are brought in on it and this is where things start to fall apart but there's still plenty of charm from start to finish. Chase is quite good in his role as he easily fits into that character who seems real and down to earth.
