Valentino gives his best Keaton Impersonation
17 July 2005 | by SpuzzlightyearSee all my reviews

This minor, VERY minor little movie seems to be made before Valentino made everyone's heart swoon with his ummm, maleness is quite surprising, because here's he's essentially playing the frustrated bachelor type, probably made more famous by Buster Keaton then anyone else. (Valentino even looks like him here). The story here is all about Valentino's frustrations in trying to propose to a girl who's always occupied with other people. His friends, the Harcourts feel sorry for the poor guy, and invite him and his girl pal to dinner. But meanwhile, the Harcourts hired help has walked off the job because they're not getting paid, and they're also expecting a visitor who might or might not help them with a business proposal that Mr. Warketin has! When the businessman DOES show up, the Harcourts decide to dress up as the help and Keaton and his gal pal impersonate the Harcourts. Hmmm, OK. Needless to say, the businessman has his eccentricities, and it all leads to, well, hijinx.

This is not BAD, although somewhat ridiculous, and dated. A modern day version of this could be interesting though.
