Storyline

A beautiful redhead (Myrna Dell) comes knocking on Leon's door demanding the return of a compact dropped accidently in his pocket while they were dancing. But his wife (Dorothy Granger) has already discovered the compact and thinks Leon bought it as a gift for her. And then, to no great surprise, the redhead's jealous husband makes an appearance. Leon, before he is cleared of any hanky-panky with the redhead, nets two black eyes. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Leon Errol - A Male Mae West
26 October 2003 | by (Western Washington State, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Anyone who finds Mae West's "Sex-pot-at-any-age" image fun should have no trouble sharing a similar joke with Leon Errol. Errol is unquestionably one of the funniest men to ever quip, mug & ham in front of a camera. He never fails to have (much) younger women - gorgeous women - following him around.....when he isn't busy chasing them. No one ever thinks to ask why there could possibly be so much chemistry between a demented old man and these fashion-model types. Comedy veteran Dorothy Granger, no slouch herself, often played his suspicious wife and she is in fine form here. Beware of Redheads is one of his funniest short films - full of sight gags and double-takes while bristling with wise cracks and funny situations. This viewer never misses an opportunity to see Leon in action and this is certainly a favorite. This picture is a tribute to its studio, RKO, which is certainly one of the unsung leaders in short comedy production
