Charley's first COLUMBIA two-reeler!!
21 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

In his first two-reel comedy for COLUMBIA after being dumped by the Hal Roach studios, Charley plays a married man who prefers hanging with his lodge pals the Hoot Owls than staying home with his wife. Attempting to mend fences, Charley takes her on holiday to a swank hotel where, after a comedy of errors, he is pursued by a jealous husband whose wife received love letters from one of Charley's fellow Hoot Owls! I found this to be a really good comedy short which benefits from Del Lord's fine direction and Charley's comedic timing - he evens get to sing in his first film for the studio!!! THE GRAND HOOTER was remade years later almost frame for frame as a Shemp Howard vehicle, OPEN SEASON FOR SAPS.
