Storyline

Edgar Kennedy, in order to attend a prizefight without his brother-in-law, pretends to be sick with intentions of sneaking off later. As usual, his best-laid plan takes another direction. His mother-in-law gives him a foot bath in a tub with what turns out to be quick-setting cement. His pal Sam drills a hole in the cement to blow the cement off with explosives, with a typical-Kennedy result... disaster. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Edgar Goes Stooge!
25 May 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Edgar wants to go to a prize fight without taking brother-in-law- Jack Rice, so he enlists pal Bud Jamison to pose as a doctor to "take him to his sanitarium for an examination" so he can sneak out. However, Jack and mother-in-law Dot Farley find out about the ruse and...

This is a lot more violent and unlikely than Edgar's usual slow-arc series of misadventures to incite his slow burn. It winds up with encasing his foot in cement and attacking it with an axe and pneumatic drill, the sort of humor far more suited to the Three Stooges at Columbia than Kennedy's unit at RKO. Perhaps that's why Jamison appears in this one. He started in the movies with Harold Lloyd in the 1910s and later appeared with most of the comedy greats, including Chaplin; was the first person to poke someone in the eye in a Three Stooges short; and was a welcome player in short comedy through year after this appearance when, having falling ill from complications due to his diabetes, he refused medical treatment because he was a Christian Scientist, and died.
