Babes in the Goods (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Funny entry has Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly working at a department store where they must work in the front window showing off the old way of doing dishes and the new way. After work the girl's find themselves locked inside the store where they must be sure and get up before the store opens in the morning. In terms of story there's very little going on in this short but the two starts make it worth viewing but the real highlight is Arthur Housman who plays the drunk who keeps watching the girls. Housman appeared in quite a few of the shorts in this series and each time he was playing a drunk and boy was he good at it. One of the highlights in the film is when the drunk believes it's raining but it too out of it to realize that the water is hitting the window from the other side and can't possible get to him. Another funny bit has him thinking a woman is having her body parts ripped off but he doesn't understand something else is actually happening. Housman clearly steals the film but both Todd and Kelly are good as well. Both of them turn in natural performances and thankfully Kelly stays pretty much under control as the two women work well off of one another. The majority of the laughs come from the drunk but there are a few other funny bits including one with Todd and Kelly in their night gear.
