Nice Comedy from Warner
21 November 2009 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Slapsie Maxie's (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Pleasant two-reel comedy from Warner has former light-heavyweight champ Max "Slapsie Maxie" Rosenbloom playing himself, fresh in retirement and running a restaurant. The new champ (Frank Faylen) comes in for dinner but accidentally gets knocked out by a dumb waiter (Johnnie Davis), which means the two must now fight it out in the ring. The waiter does have Max to train him but it's not going to be easy. I'm not going to lie and call this a great comedy, a good one or even a funny one but I will admit that it kept me entertained throughout its 17-minutes. The movie never really made me laugh because we've seen this type of story countless times before. The idea of a nobody knocking out a champ is nothing new and there's really not much of a spin to it here with the exception being that a former boxer is in the cast. Rosenbloom would end up having a pretty good career in Hollywood and he's certainly a natural. He does a pretty good job with all the dialogue and I've always enjoyed him in the films I've seen.
