| The Name Is Sharpe, Not The Movie
David Sharpe is going wild. His maiden aunts have kept the rich orphan cooped up to avoid injury. So he takes a car and heads onto the road. He picks up Mickey Daniels, and is almost run over by Gertrude Messinger in a racing car. Her brother, Jack Mulhall, was injured in a suspicious accident by gamblers backing another car. While Daniels canoodles with Mary Kornman, Sharpe gets the car into shape, despite gangsters and two inept guards sent by his aunt.

It's pretty poor movie, co-written by Sharpe and comedy short specialist Charles Rogers, and co-directed by Rogers and horse opera specialist Ray Nazarro. You won't miss much if you don't see it, and it didn't set Sharpe's career on fire. He was born in 1910 and had been in the movies for a dozen years, beginning with a role in Fairbanks' ROBIN HOOD. He would specialize in athletic bits, like playing a swordsman in SINGIN' IN THE RAIN and a lot of stunt doubling -- over 400 movies in all. He would retire after 1978's HEAVEN CAN WAIT and live to be 70.
