Becoming Charley Chase
14 March 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Publicity Pays (1924)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Jimmy Jump (Charley Chase) is the loving husband to an actress (Beth Darlington) who appears to be about to get her big break on Broadway but first she needs a scandal to bring her some added fame. Jimmy must pull out all the tricks he has to try and get her some attention. The majority of the 9-minute running time has Chase trying to sneak her pet monkey past the hotel security and of course the monkey ends up breaking free, which leads to a big chase. I was surprised to see that this short was a lot sillier than most of these early films from Chase but that's not too much of a bad thing. I think the film wastes too much time trying to get jokes off the monkey as very few of them actually work. We do get to see Chase trying to do a Harold Lloyd impersonation as one scene has him having to climb out onto a pole to try and save the little creature. The special effects of being up that high don't look true but it's still a somewhat fun sequence.
