Standard silent comedy short.
5 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Mean spirited Joe Rock short ridiculing fat men and ugly girls, without getting to be all that funny.

The comic trio go through one of those familiar getting up routines (drawn animated lines on the alarm etc.) together and take their fliver to the office, where the boss has threatened to fire them for being late. Lois Boyd, his daughter is having a costume party and the monkey in a suit steals invitations for them.

If the film has any value, it's in the record of now vanished party games, an egg & spoon race, pinning the tail on a donkey and indoor football.

Frantic but tame two reeler. Spot Tay ("Postman Always Rings Twice") Garnet's name in the credits, with the now forgotten talent.
