A cute Charley Chase comedy
19 September 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The print for "Charley My Boy!" is pretty fuzzy...due to the ravages of time. It's still very watchable and is much worse near the beginning.

This film finds Charley getting a job and falling for the boss' daughter. However, the boss has little interest in having Charley for a son-in-law...at least THAT Charley. Instead, he wants his daughter to marry a rich old Charley. But when the boss wants Charley (Chase) to stay late and work, it looks as if he wants Charley (Chase) to come to dinner! Charley is thrilled at the apparent invitation but when someone slips sleeping pills into his drink, it makes for an interesting evening!

The film has a few nice bits. The one I liked most involved a fire hydrant early in the film. But overall, it's a very pleasant and likable comedy...well worth seeing despite it being a bit fuzzy.
