Thundering Tenors (1931)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Hal Roach short has Charlie Chase playing a tenor who gets invited to a party, which he eventually destroys. I've become a big fan of Chase, both his silent and sound pictures, but this one here is without a doubt the worst I've seen. The movie contains no laughs and nearly put me to sleep several times during its short 20-minute running time.

I'm a fan of Chase but his Columbia shorts are really hit and miss. As of now, the only way to view these shorts is on Turner Classic Movies but hopefully one day Columbia will release them to DVD as they did with their Buster Keaton shorts.
