Wait For The Wagon
17 October 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Leon is having another slow day at his haberdashery shop when two men and a woman enter. They've just robbed a bank and are looking for a hide-out. They pretend to want to buy the shop, so Leon takes them home to wife Vivian Tobin. Meanwhile, a cousin shows up unannounced. As Leon gradually figures things out, the situation goows more dire. It's not helped by the fact that his brother-in-law, cop Bud Jamison is rehearsing three fellow officers in barbershop quartet. They're busy.

It's a pretty good episode in Leon's long-running series of comedy shorts for RKO. A lot of faces pop up n them and in this one in particular that you don't associate with short subjects: Frank Faylen, veteran of more than 190 features and TV's DOBIE GILLIS is here as one of the robbers.

There is something very peculiar about the layout of Leon's house. The upstairs corridors are about 12 feet wide!
