Audience Member Little-known team (today) of Wheeler and Woolsey were the first comedy team of film at this time, having made almost a dozen movies by 1935. Betty Grable makes a lengthy appearance here. The movie is not bad for 1935 tomfoolery, although it could benefit from some intelligent editing. The film definitely goes on the "watchable" pile simply for the sake of its early slapstick continuity and the fact that this comedy team was so prolific in the early days. Whether or not this type of comedy tickled your funny bone is entirely another matter (I don't think it's funny, for example, but many people will.)
