Post No Bills is a slapstick comedy with very few laughs and a worrying fondness for showing people being kicked in the derriere. Honestly, there's barely thirty seconds go by without some poor soul being punted in the rear for no real reason. That sort of thing is funny to six-year-olds the world over I suppose, but after the second or third occurrence it barely raises a smile.
Paul Parrott, who would later become James Parrott, the director of a number of Laurel & Hardy films before destroying himself with booze and drugs, takes the lead role here as a worker at a run-down cinema given the task of posting bills when the usual guy doesn't turn up. He posts them everywhere, but mostly on - you guessed it - people's behinds. There are a few half-decent ideas, but more often than not, they're stretched way too far.
