This is a film made up of Harry Langdon routines cobbled together into a feature in order to cash in on Langdon’s then-new star power. But all of that being said, is it any good?
It definitely has its moments, particularly when Langdon is given a moment to breathe and let his signature slow motion comedic skills play out. However, the story is disjointed and the seams show terribly. It’s worth seeing if you’re a Langdon fan (and I am) but not really great as an introduction. (Try The Strong Man.)
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Puts out the fire, gets the girl, etc.
If it were a dessert it would be: Peanut Butter Whoopee Pies. Prefab as it comes but if you like this kind of thing, it’s the kind of thing you like.
Availability: There is a release available from Grapevine but I have not viewed it. My version is found on Lost and Found: The Harry Langdon Collection, which I love but which is extremely out of print.
