Audience Member another wheeler & Woolsey comic vehicle Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Out of the few Wheeler and Woolsey films I have seen so far, I would rank this as one of the best. Even though there's only a basic plot, the movie works as a whole film and doesn't feel like just a sequence of vignettes, a danger of films featuring vaudevillians. It's family friendly fare featuring Spanky McFarland (who mostly smiles and smashes glass), but every so often an innuendo almost slips by. Mary Carlisle looks lovely and shines in a song sequence set on a swing. Wheeler and Woolsey seem as relaxed as their personas will allow on screen and their rapport is apparent. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member goods stuff with our gang member spanky Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
