| Slap-Happy Comedy Worth a Look
Okay, this is picture ain't much, but it does have a few things that make it worth peeking in. First, the always-charming Sally Eilers, teamed here with likable Preston Foster. Second, a really healthy supply of supporting players including Cecil Kellaway, Guinn Williams, Lorraine Krueger, Fuzzy Knight, Richard Lane, John Kelly, Jack Carson, James Flavin, Frank Thomas Sr., Willie Best, and the always delightful upholder of the law Fred Kelsey. William Brisbane is gosh-awful as Cecil Kellway's son. The part would have been much better played by Grady Sutton. And truly hilarious is an ongoing slapfest between Bobby Barber (you know - the little bald man who made bizarre appearances on THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW) and Ron Rondell. These two, with Stooge-like precision, are constantly assaulting each other and director Christy Cabanne really times their bit superbly. Again, it's a razor-thin scenario but these players have so much appeal and Cabanne keeps the pace up so it almost plays like a two or three-reeler.
