| cheesy shortie from RKO
This shortie from RKO opens with Marge Dexter (Joan Woodbury) looking for work in a nightclub. Of course, there is a mixup, and she gets "mixed up" in the shenanigans going on with the employees that work there. Jack Carson is in here in a minor role. And Harry Parke aka Parkyakarkus is in here with his comedic word-fumbles and switcheroos. "Boss, everything is under patrol!" Parke is Marge's bodyguard, trying to protect her until she can testify. The whole thing is one big vaudeville bit, with long pauses, one liners, and sight gags. Allan Lane and Gordon Jones are musicians in the nightclub, observing and trying to cozy up to Marge. Pretty good entertainment, if a little cheesy, jam-packed into one hour. Directed by Christy Cabanne, who sure fit a lot of showbiz into his short life. As actor, writer, director, and other miscellaneous crew, he started in the biz in 1911 -- he must have been there almost right from the beginning.
