A wild departure from the usual Charley Chase short.
10 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this short, Charley Chase plays an obnoxious guy who loves to go to sporting events in order to taunt the athletes. He's completely boorish and hateful--and everyone around him in the stands hates him. He elbows people next to him, smokes nasty cigars and behaves like a total jerk. And, it gets progressively worse as the film progresses. He's so obnoxious that he pretty much ruins the Green Sox performance--and gamblers decide to pay him to follow the team and harass them from the stands.

I noticed one reviewer loved this one and thought it was among his best at Columbia. I wouldn't agree--but it's all a matter of personal taste. I assume they liked his boorish hi-jinx. I just thought it was all TOO obnoxious and it comes off as forced. This is NOT the sort of character Chase usually played--as he's usually pretty nice but occasionally clueless. Here, he's pretty much the opposite of his usual nice-guy character.In addition, I WANT to like Charley in the films I watch and here you just want him to be flattened by a bus! An interesting failure, though, as I can respect him and the studio trying something original--something lacking in many of his Columbia flicks. Plus, I did like the ending...it was pretty cute.
