| Tiresome Bergen-McCarthy short falls into so-so category...
Boring and poorly executed EDGAR BERGEN/CHARLIE McCARTHY short, in which Charlie is improbably being touted as a football hero who will be expelled from college unless he passes the next exam.

What might have been a promising comedy short becomes terribly dull from the opening scene onward, without an ounce of wit in the script and with Charlie not looking quite the way he would once Bergen had polished and perfected his act in the '40s.

Poor performances from the supporting cast doesn't help and the whole thing is quite forgettable with nary a genuine laugh in sight. My only reason for watching is that it's featured on the CAPTAIN BLOOD DVD as a short subject from Warner Bros.
