Storyline

This film is a 1949 compilation from two films in the "McGuerin" streamliners series made by Hal Roach in 1942; "The McGuerins from Brooklyn" and "Taxi, Mister" which accounts for players Lew Kelly, Clyde Fillmore and Tyler Brooke being in a 1949 movie. The film opens with a clip from "The McGuerins From Brooklyn" in which Tim McGuerin and Eddie Corbett are being honored for growing their cab fleet from one in 1928 to a current 300. Lucy Gibbs asks Corbett how they got to this point, and his explanation is a flashback to an edited version of "Taxi, Mister", where Tim is romancing his future wife, burlesque performer Sadie O'Brien, whose obvious charms have also caught the eye of gangster Louis Glorio, who is not too thrilled at the attention Tim is paying Sadie. Tim's romantic problems are solved when the police discover that Glorio is also the long-wanted and mysterious figure known as the Frisco Ghost. Fade back, with a lot better editing than found in most compilations, to "The ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Two Knights from Brooklyn (1949)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Strange film from Hal Roach takes two other movies and edits them into this one. Joe Sawyer and William Bendix plays cab owners and at the start of the film they're getting an award when we see two flashbacks to their earlier days. The first, from the film Taxi, Mister has Bendix meeting and courting his future wife (Grace Bradley) while a gangster is also after her. The second flashback, from The McGuerins from Brooklyn, has the wife thinking that Bendix is cheating on her so Sawyer must pretend to be dating the woman, which then sets his girlfriend off. This series has been rather hit and miss for me but the clips from Taxi, Mister seemed very funny to me and they're certainly the highlight of this film so hopefully Turner Classic Movies will show that complete film at some point (as of this writing, I believe it's the only one that haven't shown). As far as this film goes, it's clearly very lazy because it just doesn't cut and paste scenes but the entire movie is a paste job. I'm really not sure what Roach was thinking but I guess some people might have forgotten that they had already seen these movies. The first half of the film has plenty of nice laughs but I found the stuff from the second film to be rather bland and boring. That film itself is rather disappointing so there's no shock that the stuff doesn't work here either. Alan Hale, Jr. and Max Baer appear.
