Mildly entertaining.
19 February 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film stars Harry Gribbon and Shemp Howard as two hobos. Despite Shemp being in the film and his having been one of the original Stooges *, this film is nothing like a Stooges film in style. There is no violence, slapping or punching--just a mildly interesting plot with two ne'er do wells trying to make a living. First, the hobos arrive in town by rail and then they go to work drumming up business for someone offering relief from foot pain. How do they do this? By smacking folks on the foot with their mallets! Overall, not a lot of plot and little to make this memorable but also little to offend. A very enjoyable but undistinguished short from Vitaphone.
