Bill me now
22 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James "Paul" Parrott was the brother of the great two-reel comedian of the 20s and 30s Charles "Charlie Chase" Parrott, and he's best remembered as a prolific and skilled director at Hal Roach for his brother, Laurel and Hardy, and others. However, before Charley did had a starring series at Hal Roach, Paul Parrott did. This is one of the films, and my first.

It's a very slight little one-reeler, but quite funny. Paul Parrott actually has quite a funny screen character that comes across well will his placid, clever, and self-satisfied laziness. He plays a partner in a movie theatre, and I got a good laugh from his tactic of pulling the fire alarm so his friends from the firehouse could get him to work on time. Much of the film consists of Parott posting ads for the theatre in amusing ways, which works nicely with the character built in -- we can believe that he nails them into glass not just because he's dumb but because he doesn't care what happens once he can say he's posted it.

He even finds a funny twist on the old comedy chestnut of the slip on the banana peel to get bills posted onto passers-by's posteriors. I wouldn't have minded if Paul Parrott had kept up his career on screen, based on this evidence.
