The Penguin in the second film he made
22 May 2008 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Backdrops. Backdrops. Lots of fake outdoor scenery locations used. This was only the second thing the Penguin, I mean Burgess Meredith ever did, and he stars as prospector Dick Matthews, returning home to claim his girlfriend. Ann Sothern was a seasoned film star by now, and plays "Betty Russell". Louise Henry is her sister Janet. Their mother is played by Mary Boland, who was hilarious as "The Countess" in The Women one year prior. They all end up at a dance, where things start to go haywire... of course, this is an RKO shortie, so we don't have a lot of time to sort things out. Clever script and good chemistry between the actors keep things moving quickly for most of the film. Things get wacky, and Matthews isn't sure who he wants to marry anymore. It does start to get silly near the end, as everyone is scheming and fighting. Fun way to spend an hour.
