A Precode Slapstick Gem
12 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dorothy Granger with her group of thieves are out to get a winning lottery ticket at any cost from two sailors (Eugene Palette & Walter Catlett).

From pick-up to Eugene's near seduction to a riot on the Hollenbeck Park Lake is a slapstick gem that hits all the marks for hilarity.

Del Lord directs this Phil L. Ryan produced Paramount short, spiced with precode dialog and visuals.

Look for future Oscar winner Walter Brennan as a stuttering chauffeur in the gang.

Note: 1. Hollenbeck Park is the same location that Laurel & Hardy's MEN O'WAR was filmed 4 years earlier.

2. The Laurel & Hardy Cuckoo theme is used in the opening scene.

There were 6 Palette-Catlett Paramount shorts made and this is the only one I have been able to locate and screen.
