The Morning After the Night Before
15 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Professor Leon Errol, noted author, returns to his hotel. Still feeling the effects of a night out, he wanders into the wrong room and imagines he has committed bigamy with Veronica Lake, who is on her honeymoon with Eddie Dunn. Of course he tries to hire Eddie to get him out of trouble when his wife shows up....

Leon Errol's series of shorts for RKO were all about him, doing variations of his double talk routines and the eccentric dancing that had made him a stage star and he is in good form here. It's also interesting to see Veronica Lake in her first credited screen role, even if she is going as "Connie Keane" here. She gets to show a bit more overt emotion than she did in her starring roles.
