Simply Wonderful!
3 February 2005 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

This film will put a constant smile on your face! If not more! "Neighborhood House" was planned as the first Charley Chase feature lenght film. But for some reason, Hal Roach was not satisfied with it - he made Chase cut it down to twenty minutes so it could pass as a short. It works remarkably well! There are some unmotivated fade-outs and a somewhat abrupt ending, but apart from this it is one of Chases best attempts! Charley and his family are attending a "Bank night" at the local cinema. They give away 500 Dollars that night - and Charley number is drawn. But because it was drawn by his little daughter, the audience runs mad. He finally has to return the prize - this time its his daughters number which is drawn... There are so many hilarious, admirably well executed gags in this short you want to watch it over and over again! One of the best comedy shorts ever!
