rarely shown, Dorothy Parker screenplay "Weekend for Three"
23 April 2009 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

ya gotta love Edward E. Horton ... you know when he's in a flick, its going to be fun... and in a screenplay by Dorothy Parker. The ever-flaming Franklin Pangborn is the dry but fun waiter, and Zasu Pitts is the maid. E.E. Horton is sidekick to Jim (Dennis Okeefe) and Ellen (Jane Wyatt) Craig. They have a houseguest, played by Philip Reed, who keeps getting in the way. While Okeefe and Wyatt have the lead roles, they are the least interesting characters here. The best scenes are the ones with the peripheral actors (Pangborn, Horton, Pitts). There are the usual misunderstandings that must be straightened out, and before you know it, this RKO shortie 65 minute film is over. Directed by Irving Reis, who had done some of the "Falcon" series films, and "Bachelor and the Bobby-soxer" (Cary Grant). Released the same week as Pearl Harbor, so I'll bet it didn't do well at the box office.
