Lives Down to Its Title
26 May 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Sterling Holloway starred in four movies for Jules White at Columbia. In this one, based on Harry Langdon's I DON'T REMEMBER from 1935, Holloway is a moron whose wife brilliantly gives him money to deliver to the furniture company lest they repossess the furniture. Of course he gives it to Monte Collins for a half-interest in an Irish Sweepstakes ticket.

I've seen the Langdon version, and it is good, carried by Langdon's character. Here, filled out with director White's cheaply-executed violence, the movie becomes an exercise in pain, both of the physical and mental variety.

I'm not a fan of the Three Stooges, but this poorly executed comedy makes me understand that at least they understood comic timing. Despite the real abilities of the two leading players, White overwhelms them with loud noises and cruelty.
