one of the Taxi trilogy shorts from the 1940s
20 September 2007 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Short but clever story, moves right along, since it's so short. Some suggestive naughty jokes in this one too that weren't in the first one (Brooklyn Orchid). The same two dudes, Marks and Snell,wrote all three parts of the "Taxi" trilogy. "Taxi Mister" would be number three. Also some great cameos, like Pat Flaherty, Alan Hale Jr, (Skipper from Gilligan's Island, would have been just 20 then!). Appearance by Max Baer, the boxer from the 1930s and 1940s, whose son, Max Baer Jr, would play Jethro in the "Beverly Hillbillies". Frank Hagney, the hotel doorman, had been making films since 1919, doing stunts and mostly minor or un-credited later parts. Tyler Brooke, the desk clerk, had also been in the biz since 1915. Brooke had played Cortland van Bibber in a silent comedy series in the late 1920s. Nothing new or groundbreaking in the "McGuerins from Brooklyn", but fun to watch.
