Becoming Charley Chase
Jeffries Jr. (1924)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Jimmy Jump (Charley Chase) is scared of his own shadow so he goes to former boxing champ James J. Jeffries to get into shape. That's pretty much the entire story to this 9-minute short, which is somewhat of a disappointment since there's not too much done with what could have been a good story. I don't think anyone would accuse Roach's Jimmy Jump series of containing excellent writing but at least the previous films had some sort of story going for them. The best joke here is one they keep repeating as Jimmy puts on glasses whenever he thinks he's about to get into a fight. Outside of this we see Jeffries throw a few punches at him, make him run and eventually make him tough. He makes Jimmy tough yet we never see it in any sort of payoff. The entire movie makes you think that Roach and company just took the easy way out of cutting back on a story just because they had someone, along with Chase, to sell the picture. It's a decent time killer but don't expect any laughs.
