Good Errol Comedy
26 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Besides his RKO two reelers and the "Mexican Spitfire" series, Leon Errol starred in a group of short B features for RKO in the late 1930s and 1940s. This one moves a little faster than most of the others which take about 40 minutes to set up the chase and 20 minutes to execute the slapstick. In this feature, Leon escapes his wife (Isn't that always the case with Leon!) by telling her that he is meeting with the Vice-President when he intends to go on a fishing trip. Complications set in when the Native Americans he meets on his fishing trip come to visit him. The Natives are portrayed as complete savages. They will be arrested for leaving the reservation. They eat peanuts with the shells. The reactions of the "white" people to them is unbelievably racist. However, in the middle of the film, as a policeman tries to arrest them, Leon tries to explain that the "white" men stole the land from these poor people. Bravo, Leon! So the film makers were aware of our racist attitudes and allowed Leon to state this in a subtle way. The 1940s were a different time and I do not condemn the screenwriters for this piece. It was accepted at the time. I am only glad that they showed their intelligence by giving Leon that one special line of dialogue.

The supporting players in the film are nothing to write home about. It is all Leon. Grady Sutton, a marvelous comic actor, has a very short cameo as a tailor and is as funny as always. The others let Leon carry the ball throughout the movie.
