Pretty Good Short Comedy
9 September 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This Leon Errol short comedy gets pretty good mileage out of the basic idea of "Twin Husbands". It's among the better of Errol's many two-reelers, building on the setup with a good variety of material, and keeping things moving all of the time. Errol and Dorothy Granger carry almost the whole story, as the supporting cast has very limited screen time.

The story starts Leon leaving on a business trip as his brother is just arriving in town, and from there it builds up a series of comedic coincidences. Most of it is implausible, but amusing, and it is carried off rather well in general. Errol's reactions and expressions combine well with Granger's exaggerated outrage, and as a team they keep the story on track and keep you laughing.
