Combining Skills, 6 December 2006
Author: boblipton from New York City

Jack Duffy combined two useful show business skills -- the ability to take a good comedy fall and the ability to make himself up as an old man -- and used these skills to good comic effect to play an old geezer who could take the bone-breaking falls that were common in this era of the movies: made up he looked like Chic Sales, but much sprier. And he was pretty good in a number of comedies, usually in support, but sometimes in lead, as in CHICKEN FEATHERS.

But this piece, although it had good gags, wanders too much from its basic plot assumptions -- wifey wants prize-fighting ended, but Jack is a fan who somehow gets his butler to go into the prize ring -- to rise much above a decent average.
