Amnesia, Bigamy, Murder, What's The Difference?
5 June 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Leon Errol told wife Dorothy Granger that he and Harry Harvey were going fishing. Instead they went to a party. When they run into Dorothy in a nightclub, Leon pretends to have amnesia.

It's one of the standard but well executed shorts that Errol appeared in during his long tenure at RKO from 1933 through his death in 1951, often with Miss Granger playing his wife. It starts out with a single, selfish lie on Errol's part, and by the end has escalated into bigamy and murder, all to be settled by Dorothy smashing a plate over his head.

The comedy is all about Leon, of course, with his stuttering and stammering and double takes. He also does a bit of his "rubber legs" dancing, which had made him a Ziegfeld star.
