Bizarre, but very clever comedy
15 February 2020 | by abbazabakyleman-98834See all my reviews

Harry Langdon had starred in his own series of comedy shorts for Columbia from 1934 until his sudden death in October 1944 after filming had ended on the rather poor western-themed short Pistol Packin' Nitwits co-starring El Brendel. Langdon was a popular silent-screen comedian in the 1920s, on par with both Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd, but by the 1930s, Langdon was now considered a has-been in the comedy world and was reduced to making two-reelers for Educational Pictures and eventually Columbia.

Langdon was also given a chance to write this entry and direction is credited to the rather unreliable Harry Edwards, whose alcoholism and sloppy approach to direction was most notorious for. The rather basic plot has Harry's wife going out of town and is forced to "babysit" his army buddy's girlfriend while he tends to work commitments. In the midst of the dilemma, they also must run afoul of an odd killer (Stanley Blystone). The most surreal gag comes when the girlfriend poses as a nurse to Langdon's suspicious wife and drains all the blood from his body. completely turning him white and eventually reduced to a mound of powder.
