A harbinger of what's to come in "Mighty Like A Moose", 3 June 2008
Author: WCFIELDS from Baltimore, Md

I rated this a 9 out of 10. Because this film is just as funny or maybe just a little bit shy of the hilarity you find in "Mighty Like A Moose." Charley Chase is screamingly funny as he once again portrays dual roles in this film. Vivien Oakland is delightful as she is once again Charley's wife, whom he decides to teach a lesson. Mildred Harris ( a former Mrs. Charlie Chaplin ) plays the neighbor across the hall, who is a man chasing Flapper Good Time Girl. An honorable mention must be given to veteran supporting actor Syd Crossley as the Chase's butler. This delightful farce was directed by Leo McCarey, who directed so many wonderful comedies both silent and sound. This film is definitely worth seeking out if you are a Charley Chase fan and also if you want to introduce someone to the comedy genius of the sadly under appreciated Charley Chase.
