Is it Shaw's Doctor's Dilemma or the Patient's?
22 August 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Unusually telling Christie slapstick in which Jimmy Adams' doctor forbids him from going to the office for his health..... but what about his business' health? Although the story reverts to fairly standard slapstick after that, Jimmy Adams has a great time in the comic role of a man going through a nervous breakdown. Fine titles, embellished by future director Norman Z. McLeod's add to the fun, as do the usual Christie clowns' in their expert slapstick.

Jimmy Adams had a bit of a comedy short career in the early 1920s, but like many of his brethren he wasn't able to sustain it. He wound up doing support for several of Charley Chase's shorts in the early thirties before dying at the young age of 45.
