This is a remake of an earlier Charley Chase film...so why not see the original?!
10 December 2007 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is one of a small number of Charley Chase films he made with Columbia Studios instead of the old familiar Hal Roach Studios. Unfortunately, instead of creating something new and different for Columbia, this is a remake of an earlier Chase film, CRAZY LIKE A FOX. Both films have the identical plot--he and a girl he doesn't know are supposed to get married and Charley wants to scare her and her parents out of the marriage by acting crazy. And, in both, before he puts on the crazy act, he actually met his bride to be and fell for her--not knowing this was his fiancée. A rather contrived and hard to believe plot even for a comedy short! Now considering that this film offers no improvement over the original AND it is about as subtle as a Three Stooges film, I hardly could recommend it. My advice? See CRAZY LIKE A FOX and be done with it.
