Invite this Fuller Brush Girl In! Inane Hilarity ***1/2
Absolute side-splitting comedy dealing with the incomparable Lucille Ball losing her switchboard job and trying to work for the Fuller Brush Company. The situations that she soon finds herself in are hilarious at best to describe. Curling 4 women with a chemical-laced product by one of the latter's children causes the women to lose their hair. Walking in on a murder and then dodging the police with boyfriend, an adept at comedy Eddie Albert, provides further laughter. Albert is soon accused of murder as well. Jerome Cowan and Lee Patrick appear as the murder victims.
The scene on board the boat with the mayhem created by the crooks chasing Sally (Ball) and Humphrey (Albert) is filled with non-stop lasts.
This movie provided Lucille Ball the material she needed to show her ability in comedy.
While many will find this silly, when you need a good laugh, see this screwball film. It's fun at its best.
