Stupor is right
28 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Jack Norton made a good living playing drunks. His face, if not his name, is familiar to anyone who has seen Hollywood films from the 1930's and 1940's. Often his parts were small ones where his appearance would add to the hilarity of the scene, sort of a drunk in the crowd type scenario. When attempting to broaden his comedic approach as in this short, he usually faltered. He was an actor effective in only one role, somewhat like an early version of Foster Brooks.

In "The Stupor-Visor," Norton is pitted against his wife, played by Kitty McHugh, a lady with a lot of charm and better comic timing than Norton exhibits, when the couple suddenly find themselves running against each other as supervisor, she chosen by a women's club, he by a men's group. The script written by director Charles E. Roberts must have looked good on paper with lots of fun written in for a battle of the sexes farce. Unfortunately, the gags are ancient ones that even Milton Berle wouldn't have touched.

If you think releasing a cage full of rats in a room full of women is funny, then you'll laugh your self to death watching "The Stupor-Visor." Otherwise, beware.
