All Charm... and Buster Keaton
17 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Terrific little comedy from Universal. I didn't expect much and watched only to see the great Buster Keaton in a supporting role. But this is a solid and wacky little comedy about a pushy daughter (Louise Allbritton) and her inventor father (Edward Everett Horton) in their attempts to crash the corporate headquarters of a company in San Diego run by a reclusive millionaire (Jon Hall). The situations may be very TV but in 1945 this was fresh material. But the cast is tops and saves this one.

Eric Blore is hilarious as the "family retainer." Irene Ryan as the wayward tenant is also very funny. I also spotted Almira Sessions, Florence Lake, Chester Clute, Hobart Cavanaugh, Esther Howard, Sara Selby, Dewey Robinson, Vernon Dent, and many other great character actors.

Certainly worth a look.....
