Bathing Beauties
28 September 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Sound may have been threatening, Sennet and the Christies may have been showing the strain, but the 20s were still roaring when George Marshall supervised this short comedy for Fox. There is a reasonable story, lots of bathing beauties, great production values and plenty of comic takes and pratfalls and, of course, a small dog in this short subject about a hotel throwing a bathing beauty contest for publicity. Naturally things get out of hand when publicity man Richard Walling is concerned. But this is one of the few reasonably accessible comedy shorts from this comedy unit and you will see a wealth of skilled physical comedians working their gags here, many of whom never raised their heads above the second screen of actors -- and some who never got that far. But there are plenty here and it's nice to see the results.
