The Old Sea Dog was another pretty good vintage Hal Roach comedy short
This was another Hal Roach comedy I watched on the one DVD set of Hal Roach Rarities from Alpha Home Entertainment. Snub Pollard is a sailor whose ship he may lose unless he has enough money to pay his license. Marie Mosquini is his girlfriend who tries to help him. The film begins with Pollard recounting a pirate ancestor getting the best of his shipmates-all of whom have peg legs! In present day, quite a few visual gags involving falling in the water abound, funny each time it happens. Charlie Chase-as Charles Parrott-directed with a sure hand with fine visual timing. The print is not the best but it's good enough for such an old print. So on that note, I recommend The Old Sea Dog.
