Fun Size Review: Crazy Like a Fox (1926)

Charley Chase wants to marry Martha Sleeper but first he has to finagle his way out of an arranged marriage… to Martha Sleeper. Chase feigns insanity and terrorizes the neighborhood, including Oliver Hardy.

One Chase’s zaniest pictures containing one of his best comedy routines, a hat with a feather and a string. I was unable to draw a full breath while watching this film because I was laughing so much.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

In spite of himself, Charley wins Martha’s hand.

Read my full-length review here.

If it were a dessert it would be: Mini Strawberry Shortcake Poppers. Zippy, tangy fun!

Availability: Released on DVD.

  1. I’m a Chase fan too. Have enjoyed everything I’ve seen him in, including his work in the sound era, which sometimes featured his wonderful singing voice.

  2. Charlie has become my favorite comedian. I’ve also been impressed with Martha Sleeper. Every time I see her, she’s great. Fluttering Hearts is my favorite 2 reel comedy. It also has Martha, and Oliver Hardy, and a mannequin.
