Calling this second-rate would be way too generous.
In the second collection of Columbia Pictures shorts starring Charley Chase, I was very surprised at the quality of the shorts--at least initially. Most were pretty good...until I got to the last half dozen or so on the disc. They were pretty terrible and it looks as if whoever compiled them did in order of quality and laughs. Sap takes a wrap is awfully unfunny and ends much like a Three Stooges film--with a giant mêlée.
Charley is an attorney dating some society lady. However, a pesky reporter prints outright lies about Charley--making him seem like a Cassanova. He denies this strongly to his girlfriend and she generally believes him. But, when he talks to a group of larcenous girls who come to him about a fur coat, she assumes he's two-timing her. To try to get out of it, he gives the girls' coat to his girlfriend. Through the rest of the film, this group of girls who own and share the coat keep trying to get it back from him. Wow...when I explain the plot, it really DOES sound unfunny!
