Jimmy gets no respect
23 July 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Yes Yes Nanette has Stan Laurel as co-director of a silent short subject that has in its cast among others Oliver Hardy and James Finlayson. The two are rivals for Nanette with Ollie as her former blue collar boyfriend and Finlayson as the elegant man about town that she marries.

Lyle Tayo plays Nanette, but it really is Finlayson who carries this short subject. The poor guy marries distinctly below his class and his elegant ways get no respect from Tayo's family. His toupee seems to be a prime target with even the dog having some fun with it.

The only thing this short subject has in common with the Broadway musical No No Nanette is the play on words in the title. But it still is a funny film.
