Storyline

In the first film featuring the comedy team of Clark & McCullough, Clark (Bobby Clark)and Grustark (Paul McCullough)seek refuge in the boarding house owned by Finlayson (James Finlayson)after wrecking the car owned by Morgan (Kewpie Morgan). Finlayson, never without rules, warns them there is no cooking allowed in the rooms and his new roomers proceed to pop corn over the gas heater. A young girl (Josephine Whittell)mistakes their room for the bathroom, which leads to some pre-code complications. The slapstick ending finds Clark and Grustark driving out of the boarding house in Morgan's car with a bed attached to the car. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

One of the funniest 1930's comedies in which James Finlayson steals the show!
2 March 2007 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest short comedies of the 1930's. In this movie comedy-team Clark & McCullough rent a room and their landlord is James Finlayson. (Best remembered as the number 1 foil to Laurel & Hardy.) He works perfectly well with the team, even better than in JITTERS THE BUTLER. As the hard of hearing, forgetful and partially sighted landlord, Finlayson steals every scene. Some of his lines are repeatedly hilarious: "No cookin'!" and "Oh yes, I forgot!" Also in the cast are Eddie Dunn and Kewpie Morgan, who played the King in Laurel & Hardy's BABES IN TOYLAND. After seeing this short comedy and two others I am positive that Clark & McCullough deserve to be re-discovered!
