Pretty bad
10 October 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I noticed as I watched Volume Two of the Charley Chase shorts from Columbia Pictures that the final half dozen or so shorts in the collection were simply terrible. I can only assume that whoever compiled the films did this deliberately--as if you watched the bad ones first, you might give up on seeing the rest!

Charley goes to his girlfriend's home only to find that her father has barred him from setting foot inside the place. He thinks (rightfully) that Charley is an idiot and that trouble follows him. So, to get on the man's better side, Charley decides to help the guy obtain a rare stamp from Pidgmania. He pretty much spends the rest of the film chasing about town, finding the stamp, losing the stamp again and again. However, after he gets the stamp and gets the man's blessing to marry his daughter, a really dumb plan of Charley's blows up in his face and ugly women from all over the world start showing up to marry him. What follows is a badly filmed chase scene that isn't funny.

This is the final film on the disc--and it made me HAPPY there were no more! It's a shame, as many of the earlier ones in the set were nearly as good as many of the films Chase made for Hal Roach Studios-- though none came close to his best films (such as "Mighty Like a Moose").
