A Different Type of Langdon
27 September 2012 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

His Marriage Wow (1925)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Harry Langdon plays a man about to be married but he gets off on the wrong foot by going to the wrong church. He finally arrives at the right place but Professor McGlumm scares him by asking why such a beautiful woman would want to marry him. Of course, McGlumm says it's because she's going to kill him for the insurance money, which makes Langdon a nervous boy. HIS MARRIAGE WOW is a "wow" in terms of comedy but I thought it was a fairly interesting movie made worth viewing because you really get to see a different type of Langdon. As other reviewers have said, this here isn't the typical type of role that you'd see Langdon doing but I actually thought he did a pretty good job. I really liked the nervous look that was constantly on his face and especially during a dinner sequence where McGlumm makes him think that he's drank some poison. Another funny sequence happens at the end as the two are driving around but I won't spoil what happens or the twist that happened in the story (which actually works well). Langdon offers up a fine performance but I think it's Vernon Dent who really steals the picture as McGlumm.
