| silly, silly, caper
Lupe Velez is "the Mexican Spitfire" in the follow up, but it's everyone else that makes this chapter fun. My personal favorite is Florence Bates.. she made a limited number of films, and every one is a gem (Rebecca !) Bates has such an interesting life story. then there's Zasu Pitts who had started in silents, moved into talkies, and finished with Mad, Mad World. Character actor Leon Errol. The plot is too goofy to explain, and i don't think even the actors really knew what the plot was, but the whole idea is for Leon Errol to pretend to be someone else, and then the caper can began. Mistaken identies, clever one and two liners, and much muttering jokes under one's breath. and of course the usual language mixups by Carmelita (Velez). It's all very silly, but the word play keeps it interesting, like a Marx Brothers film. Directed by Les Goodwins, who had directed so many Spitfires with Velez. Shows now and then on Turner Classics. It's a fun one!
