I just watched this on TCM - 19 minutes of Laverne and Shirley - a la Hal Roach. Add some commercials and that's what you have - a 30 minute sitcom. Roommates Patsy and Thelma are struggling to make ends meet, Thelma in a dead end job and Patsy looking for work. A telegram informs Patsy that she has inherited her uncle's estate - but there's a catch. Cute "special effects", cleverly done - for 1935! Stars Patsy Kelly and Thelma Todd in one of their many classic shorts that they did together in the 30's. I love it when TCM shows these! This is not a real waste of time, lots of sight gags and slapstick, all with the Hal Roach signature music playing in the background.
