Charley Gets Tight with Thelma
3 February 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Charley and Thelma Toddd get engaged, but he has to entertain the firm's best customer, Dell Henderson.... and a couple of party girls. Thelma doesn't care for the idea, so she invites herself instead of one of the girls; when Henderson prefers her to Dorothy Granger, no one can figure out how to tell him no.

With the second season of Chase's sound shorts in full swing, James Horne directing and Thelma Todd as his leading lady, Charley was hitting his peak period in the talkies. The risque Pre-Code plot and obvious screen chemistry with Thelma, as well as Dorothy Granger's first sizeable role, are all major plusses for this short. Miss Granger would appear in hundreds of movies over the next thirty years, including a long run as Leon Errol's wife in his RKO series from 1935 through his death in 1951.

It's also Edgar Kennedy's last appearance in one of Charley's shorts. His contract with Roach would end shortly and he would wind up at RKO and freelancing extensively.

In the meantime, this funny comedy runs mostly on Thelma Todd's reactions, which are wonderful. Keep a close eye on her throughout.
