Not hilarious but a nice romantic comedy
23 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an early Jimmy Jump short starring Charley Chase. The film is directed by his brother, James Parrott. The different last name is because Chase was a stage name--his family name was Parrott. In fact, Charley directed a lot of films himself--but using his real name.

Charley is a mousy young man who is in love with the boss' daughter. However, the boss has ambitions of the daughter marrying some rich society guy, so Charley's chances are pretty poor. He has a co-worker who is a bit of a jerk--and how big a jerks is something you'll see by the end of the picture. I could tell more about the film, but it would spoil the plot. Just know that although there are not tons of laughs in this one, the film is more plot and character driven than the usual comedy of the day. And, like quite a few of the Jimmy Jump films is a bit of a romantic comedy. Well worth seeing.

By the way, look for a scene late in the film that is back at the office. While it's black outside the window--it's somehow broad daylight on the sidewalk just below window! Oops.
