Fun Size Review: Skinner’s Dress Suit (1926)

This domestic comedy is all about a young couple with an addiction to credit and dancing, surely a timeless plot. As a bonus, the couple is played by Reginald Denny and Laura La Plante, who bring real charm and appeal to their characters.

This is an old school Hollywood studio film that relies on incredibly charismatic stars to succeed and succeed it does. The Skinners surely have one of movieland’s best marriages. This feel-good gem comes highly recommended.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
Mr. Skinner’s dancing prowess helps him land a big client for his old firm and wins him the promotion he needs to pay his debts.

If it were a dessert it would be: Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake. An American feel-good classic.

Availability: Released on DVD.
