Ensemble Comedy
30 August 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Shemp Howard is relatively restrained in this Columbia short. By and large Big Boy is actually the lead comic and Shemp supports him. Frankly, that's the way I prefer Shemp. He's fine in small doses, but let him loose with his tics and noises and bluster and I don't like him.

Here, with Williams to take the brunt of the Jules White gags -- the standard one here is when they eat a feather oven mitt -- it's actually about two young men, competing for a girl. One is heading off to college and a bunch of youngsters come over for a party, with almost a score of them in one shot.

It's a pretty good comedy, in no small part because in 1940, the budget of a Columbia short would still support a few niceties like a cast. After the War, inflation would eat into those budgets. For the moment, though, it was still enough. Enjoy it while it lasts.
