Hilarious Short
24 April 2010 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Panic in the Parlor, A (1941)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Hilarious short has Leon Errol sneaking off to Mexico with a friend but his wife (Virginia Vale) finds out about it and decides to make him think she has a couple lovers on the side. Laurel and Hardy fans are going to find this very similar to SONS OF THE DESERT but that really didn't take away any entertainment because I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times during the film. The set up is pretty easy but we have an apartment with the wife inside making man voices so that her husband on the outside will think she has a couple men with her. The jealously eventually gets the best of Errol and he tries to get even but of course things don't go as planned. I'm still rather new to the work of Errol but so far I've found these RKO shorts to be incredibly funny. This here is certainly the best I've seen as the majority of the jokes work extremely well and that includes a few very funny bits with the boss also finding out Errol wasn't where he was suppose to be.
