A hilarious short
2 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To begin the short, Walter Catlett introduces not only the actors but the crew and then says of the crew: "They could all be actors but they prefer steady work." Walter Catlett plays the blustering Harry Judson who asks his girlfriend if it would be okay if he asked her father for her hand in marriage. She says okay and as soon as he leaves, she phones her dad and tells him to under no circumstances say yes when Judson asks his permission to marry her. The entire family then plays the role of batty relatives for Judson's benefit. The dad, mom, grandmother and other relatives are all wacky much to Hudson's consternation. At one point the mother receives a telegram from Aunt Rosa. Hudson notes that the envelop is empty. The mother replies: "My Aunt Rosa and I aren't speaking." There are a number of what are probably old vaudeville jokes including my favorite: All flies are blind - they left their specs on the window. Walter Catlett was great in this short.
