A rather peppy Chase at the end of his too-short life...
13 January 2020 | by NellsFlickersSee all my reviews

Watching this short is a little depressing, given Chase passed away soon after. While he appears a bit older than his 46 years and had been in bad health, he actually seems full of pep. His search for postage stamps is rather cute (especially to this stamp collecting-fan!), with some good, silent-era style gags, but the last part of the film, where he attempts to get married, slows things down too much.

If only he had lived longer, who knows what he could have done for screen comedy, if only behind the cameras...
