So You Want to Keep Your Hair (1946)

*** (out of 4)

The one and only Joe McDoakes (George O'Hanlon) finds himself losing his hair so he goes to every barber and expert he knows to try and find out how to keep it. Of course everyone gives him a different answer so he heads to the Mo-Hair Institute to try and learn more about why men lose their hair. This here is another winning entry in the series as we get some very big laughs as well as a pretty funny look back at the history of "cures" for hair loss. One of the funniest sequences in the film is when we see the various ways to make your hair grow back. We see men breaking eggs on their head, using dry shampoo, using various food products and of course none of them are working. As usual, O'Hanlon is perfect as McDoakes as he has that every man quality that made this series so much fun to watch. He does his usual slapstick but it's those priceless facial gestures that he's so perfect at. Art Gilmore stepped in to do the narration on this entry and he manages to be quite funny as well.
