Two of Chase's Best, 10 March 2008
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

April Fool (1924)

*** (out of 4)

A newspaper writer (Charley Chase) arrives at work and becomes the non-stop target of April Fool's jokes. This was my first Chase film so I'm not too sure what to think of him yet but this film here was funny enough for me to enjoy. The jokes are all centered around April Fool's but it works for the most part.

Fraidy Cat (1924)

*** (out of 4)

The coward (Charley Chase) of the town learns he's gonna die in a week so he decides to go out like a man. Wonderful gags include a group of kids picking on Chase and how he finally gets even with him. The stuff between Chase and his pick on dummy are very good.
