"Bank Night" at the movies leads to trouble for Charley Chase...
31 July 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The "house" in the title refers to the neighborhood movie house where every week (in the early and mid-'30s) there were giveaway prizes given at local movie houses. In this case, the house is offering a $500 prize on "Bank Night" and the lucky winner is CHARLEY CHASE--who has already caused quite a commotion in the audience when he, his wife and daughter make too much of a stir while being seated.

When he wins the prize, the audience boos and think it's a cheat between him and his friend, the theater manager. His daughter volunteers to pick out the next ticket from the bowl--and she reads off his prize number when she can't read the actual number on the slip. This causes more of a furor. And on it goes, as he tries to get others to read the numbers and it always comes back to the Chase family.

Very amusing short was probably considered a lot funnier back then when it was more relevant to Depression-era audiences.
