Did You Know?


While Bert Lahr did star in The Wizard of Oz (1939) as the Cowardly Lion just three years before this movie was produced (and much of Bert's same shtick and style from Oz appeared in this movie as well - the warbling voice, the oblique reference to his 'cowardly act', and other similarities), Buddy Ebsen was also supposed to star in 'Oz' as the Tin Man but infamously had to be replaced because of an allergic reaction to the silvered paint. This might have also been Buddy's last true hoofing flick before he turned straight actor. See more »

Clarence 'Chow' Brewster: Have you ever heard my courage questioned?

Are you the doorman? Well, here's a door for ya...
12 April 2004 | by (Silver Spring, MD) – See all my reviews

The NYPD get no answers after pulling up in front of the swank Boathouse Inn to investigate a possible homicide, but Tommy (Buddy Ebsen), a friend of the presumed victim, decides to stay and take a look around. He quickly falls for the cigarette girl, who along with her cousin Chow Brewster (Bert Lahr) is going to inherit millions, but only if the missing person can bring them the news before mobsters give them the business.

The jokes may be old and stale, but Buddy and Bert still manage to pull them off. Ebsen is wonderfully engaging as a good-natured not-quite country bumpkin; Lahr is the standard Bert Lahr persona. They may not seem like the logical choices to pair off in a buddy film, but they share enough good-natured energy to make it seem completely natural. The music swings, the song and dance is a pleasure, and the movie is just plain fun. Definitely worth watching if you get the chance.
