Storyline

Super-efficient "Flea Powder King" Mr. Henderson takes his assistant Charley with him on a dry-run of a Honeymoon trip to note how everything will happen and avoid mistakes. However, Charley is forced to act out the position of an actual "Mrs. Henderson" with ever deepening humiliation, including riding sidesaddle, wearing a corsage and having his hair waved.

Below Par for Charley
21 January 2007 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

As the plot summary notes, Charley's boss, J.P. 'Dell' Henderson, the flea-powder king, wants to get married, and to make sure the honeymoon will be a success, he goes through the entire honeymoon with Charley, calling and treating Charley as 'Mrs. Henderson'. Charley has a fairly limited number of comic reactions here, mostly sulky and between the outdated plot and lack of interesting gags it quickly becomes repetitious.

This was, of course, from Charley's weakest period: he doesn't sing, his female lead is Muriel Evans and while Dell Henderson, his virtual co-star, is a capable comedian too, he is also locked into a one-note performance. For especial Chase fans only.
