The Rev. Charles Parker a good guy: teaching baseball to boys, tearing his pants but not caring, planting flowers before finishing his sermon for the next day. The hobo telegraph (words on the back side of a billboard near the tracks) says he's the town's softest touch. George, a tramp, gets to Parker's house and thinks the reverend, torn clothes and all, is a fellow hobo. Charles invites George in, fixes him lunch, and, after a discussion about trust, gives George $10, the keys to the car of his daughter's boyfriend, and tells George to pick up roses for the Parkers' anniversary. Hours pass and George hasn't returned. Did the reverend believe his own sermon and trust the wrong man? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Back in Two-Reelers
18 June 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In a directing career that lasted more than fifty years, Allan Dwan worked with almost everyone, one time or the other. Here he is, back in the two-reelers for the first time since about 1915, directing this comedy short for Hal Roach's Screen Directors' Playhouse. He's dealing with one of the fine casts that Hal Roach could assemble thanks to his long career as a producer, starting in 1915 and also lasting more than half a century; his last credit as producer would be for 1966's ONE MILLION B.C.

In this one, minister Dennis O'Keefe is having a busy day. When a young couple shows up to be married, he sends hobo Sheldon Leonard with ten dollars and a borrowed Thunderbird to pick up flowers for his wife, Fay Wray. The production is a straightforward affair which ma strike the viewer as a little sappy, but for the short time it lasts, it's very amusing.
