Storyline

Dave O'Brien--my favorite "fall guy"...
29 March 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best of the Pete Smith specialties starring former stuntman DAVE O'BRIEN as "Mr. Everyman." In this one, he first copes with parking a car and manages to smash cars in the fore and aft position. Next, he decides to build a patio in his backyard. All he has to do is lay the cement. Not so simple--especially when a kid's ball lands in the newly laid cement or when a neighbor tries to help and makes more of a mess. So, it's up to Dave to solve the situation.

Naturally, he's the worst participant in the solution. By the film's end, he's landed flat on his back in his own cement job.

Good for laughs--and O'Brien's physical prowess is as good as his skill with getting laughs out of slapstick comedy.
