Edgar's New Auto
23 October 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Edgar is in a good mood. He is getting a new car.The dealer offers him $200 on the old one. Brother-in-law Jack Rice scoffs, so he buys the car for $200 -- which he borrows from his sister, Florence Lake -- and gets her and Dot Farley to help him fix it up, planning to sell it for more.

If the best laid plans of mice and men aft gang agley, then what chance does Edgar Kennedy and his family have in this fine episode of his long-running RKO comedy series, THE COMMON MAN?

Back when Kennedy was working at the Hal Roach studio, comedies about cars were a staple, and this short recalls them, with more the brutal rough house that sound slapsticks delighted in. There's a nice tit-for-tat sequence with Dick Wessel, as Dot Farley calls him a brute and rips up his dressing be, while Wessel responds by demolishing the car.
