Enjoyable example of Jules White at his tasteful best
No joke intended--Director Jules White could and did occasionally make very entertaining and restrained films; you could almost call this one "breezy", due in no small part to White's usual quick pace.

The characters are all surprisingly appealing for a Columbia short, and the scene between Dorothy Grainger and Victor Travers as Father Donovan is downright whimsical. The young Noah Beery, Jr is at his charming best, supported by a host of Columbia's excellent supporting players. Our pal Shemp Howard--believe it or not--is not the real funnyman in the cast; that honor goes to Paul Hurst, filmed the same year he, as the Union deserter, was shot dead by Vivien Leigh on the staircase at Tara.

I'll hang onto my copy of this one.
