Among Leon Errol's Best Short Comedies
16 August 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is among the best of Leon Errol's short comedies in which he plays a hen-pecked but conniving husband. Here he plays his character to good effect, alternating nicely between being obsequious and being devious, and squeezing the most out of the material.

The story starts out with Leon determined to stop his nephew from marrying a hotel manicurist, but soon it's Leon who's in trouble of all kinds. The situation quickly gets very complicated and silly, and Errol is in his element, using his facial expressions, his mannerisms, and his lines to build up the increasing absurdity of his predicament.

Errol's short comedies are not so well-known anymore, but most of them were entertaining, efficiently-crafted movies. "Man-I-Cured" is among the best of them; it has some very good moments, and is definitely worth a look.
