Comedy on the Car
18 August 2017 | by MaliejandraSee all my reviews

Charles Murray and George Sidney are streetcar operators who hate each other, but they find a common enemy in their new supervisor. They get lots of laughs as mainly straight characters against the various trials the colorful public brings. Among them is Arthur Housman playing (what else?) a drunk who wants to know if the streetcar goes to Main Street, Sherwood Bailey of Our Gang fame as an annoying unruly kid, and adorable little Buster Phelps in a blink-and-you'll-miss-him part. It is no wonder these streetcars show up so often in comedies; they were a perfect contained space for a lot of laughs.

This film was shown at Capitolfest in 2017.
