Frenetic Fun
23 December 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

If the frantic Ken (O'Keefe) doesn't get that incriminating garter back from ex-sweetie Gertie (McDonald), it's good-bye to wife Patty (Ryan). Trouble is Gertie has her own plans, and when she doesn't, grasping butler Charles (Naish) does. Meanwhile, buddies Ted (Sullivan) and Billy (Cowan) are no help at all. So it looks like splitsville for poor Ken, unless the screenplay comes up with a last minute solution.

This 1945 production mimics the highly successful Up in Mabel's Room of 1944, even down to director Dwan and male lead O'Keefe. That's not surprising since what could be snappier fun for a war factory's late shift than these frenetic bedroom farces. They're non-stop action with the gags and innuendoes flying faster than Superman's speeding bullet. O'Keefe's in a permanent lather, while McDonald shows the stuff that nicknamed her The Body. Yes, indeed.

Anyway, you can check your brain at the door and let the nonsense take over. In my book, the movie's still a whole lot of fun, even if garters have gone the way of the corset.
