Early sound comedy short.
10 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The novelty of having a Max Davidson comedy with sound is off set against the labored gags in this CAT & the CANARY rip off.

Max is second banana to a largely unfunny Fazenda but he and regular stooge O'Donnell are still operating as a team and we get to hear their voices.

The surreal gags accumulate in the later stages - Sweeny Todd bed, dwarf with carnival head, animating billiard balls and living statues.

The feeble attempt to explain all these of the ending just slows things down.

The usual poverty row production values.
