Closing Down the Shorts Department
21 January 2007 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Roach's 'Girl Friends' series winds down in the last year of Roach's short subjects production with no Zasu Pitts and with Thelma Todd dead -- Patsy Kelly and Pert Kelton get roped into selling aluminum pots and pans door to door. Unhappily there is very little chemistry between these two comediennes as Miss Kelly is 90% of the show and Miss Kelton is largely reduced to nodding in support. The gags are what sustains this movie; the Roach studio staff knew how to write gags and they could call upon a large number of actors and actresses to fill out the cast expertly.

This actually looks like it was originally intended to be a Laurel & Hardy short subject. It's a pity we can't see that version. They could have made a great movie out of it, but they were no longer doing short subjects.
