Blondes, redheads, lollipops and gangsters, oh my!
24 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This "Blondes and Redheads" short is not as funny as the two previous shorts on the Alpha video DVD, and it seems to be a combination the lack of a real story and the changing of director from George Stevens to Sammy White. Dorothy Granger has taken over the role of the "redhead" from June Brewster and is acceptable, while Carol Tevis back fracturing the English language as the stereotypical squeaky voiced dumb blonde. It all involves clumsy millionaire Grady Sutton trying to learn how to dance and hiring the girls for lessons which leads him to being harassed and chased by a rather bullyish thug (Tom Kennedy) and ending up in an impromptu boxing ring. Of course, Sutton isn't as nebbishy as he appears to be, showing Kennedy quite by accident that he has more than what it takes to stand on his own and stand up for himself. Even with that theme there, it's not as hysterical as the other three entries that I've seen and comes off as rather ordinary.
