Like the title says: slightly terrific
26 December 2006 | by fcullenSee all my reviews

There's two reasons why this movie is enjoyable: lead comedian Leon Errol and comedy director Eddie Cline. In other hands this would have been one more slightly embarrassing, low-budget, bottom-of-the-bill dud. There's little plot and that's probably all for the better as the plot is nonsense. But Leon Errol, about 70 when he made this movie, is very good in a double---make that a triple---role. Errol was one of the best physical and character comedians back in the Ziegfeld Follies, and 30 years later he was still a master. His drag act compares with that of any other comic before or after him. Betty Kean, one-half of the comedy duo, the Kean Sisters (Betty & Jane), dancer Ray Malone and Eddie Quinlan help make the fun, but some of the other acts that pop up every few minutes are strictly bush league. This isn't a comic masterpiece, but Slightly Terrific gives you the chance to see what a great comedian, Leon Errol, can do with two-cent script in a buck-and-a-quarter budget film that is helmed by one of the better comedy directors in Hollywood.
