Pretty Good Short Comedy
12 August 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good Leon Errol short comedy, combining some of his usual hen-pecked husband scenes with some new material. It starts when Leon is named as the "Dummy Owner" of a racehorse that was purchased by his boss. This setup creates several predicaments and plenty of confusion for Leon as he tries to adjust to his new role. Most of it is pretty good, and not too predictable. Although there are no big laughs, it is entertaining and keeps your attention easily.
