| Alison Skipworth & Polly Moran
TWO WISE MAIDS is a very minor comedy/drama starring Alison Skipworth and Polly Moran in an attempt to find the chemistry that made Moran's teaming with Marie Dressler so profitable. It doesn't quite happen.

Old-fashioned story of old maid teacher known as Old Ironsides (Skipworth) who meddles in everyone's life and is seen as out of date by the new principal puts Skipworth squarely at the center of the story while it sidelines Moran as the relatively unimportant and uninteresting friend. Story culminates in an accusation of striking a student. At the hearing many of her old students come back to defend her.

Skipworth is a joy and Moran does what she can with scant materials. Donald Cook is the new principal and Irene Manning the new teacher with a secret. Marcia Mae Jones and Jackie Searl are quite good as troublesome students. Lila Lee shows up in a small part at the end of the film. Also in the cast are Luis Alberni, Clarence Wilson, John Hamilton, Maxie Rosenbloom, and Theresa Conover.

The film must have done OK at the box office since Moran and Skipworth were re- teamed the following year in LADIES IN DISTRESS.
