One of Graham's few films of his own, after his career as dialog director on Warner's big movies,GOOD FELLOWS is a so so support movie comedy,among those the studio pushed out without ambition or promotion in this period.
Trying for small town atmosphere, the film pivots on Cecil Cellaway's Grand Caesar in the Ancient Order of Noblest Romans of Wakefield, Indiana lodge activities, taking the time he should give his family, with Realtor daughter Walker the main victim.
Of course everything works out well in the last reel.
With the Australian MR. CHEDWORTH STEPS OUT, this is a rare chance to see the talented star given a chance to head the bill.
