Fast and Painless
29 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This little movie only runs 51 minutes, but it manages to entertain with a nostalgic look at small town values, some music, and the inclusion of Gale Storm and Zasu Pitts years before they were teamed in Oh! Susanna. Slim Summerville is as funny as ever, and Zasu makes a good partner for him. The music is a mixed bag. Gale Storm, possesor of a lovely singing voice, plays the accordian here. An Andrews sisters like trio performs a song called "Woogie Hula" which is pleasant enough, then a vocalist called Honey Lamb does a number called "In The Land of Nod" which must rank with the worst songs ever written. The melody is OK, but whoever wrote those lyrics must have been on something. The production company is Wilding Pictures, which I have heard of, but only in connection with industrial films. The fact that John Deere tractors are very visible here may have something to do with this. The bottom line is that this little film is a pleasant enough way to while away less than an hour.
