A Ham Made Comedy
3 January 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Ham gets a job at the lunch counter at a physical fitness club and quickly rouses the ire of manager Kewpie Morgan. After the usual series of delightfully inventive disasters with food, he gets reassigned to the gymnasium, where matters soon take a turn towards the disastrous.... with a typicallly Hamiltonian ambiguous triumph.

Ham had been out of production for a while, between injuries and getting involved with some unsavory associates. He had, by all reports, built up a backlog of short subjects including, apparently, this one. Although not one of his best, it's still a funny addition to the list of surviving films of Lloyd Hamilton, far too few of which are available.
