      Audience Member Although this type of film is not my forte, it will appeal to lovers of slapstick comedy, and it is very well done for the genre . One sight gag after another adds to the Three Stooges-type comedic quality of this film and the sequences fit together impressively. We must give credit where credit is due. This film is a marvelous example of slapstick comedy, and would appeal to young people of today if it was in color and reprocessed so that it was technologically modern. After all the effort put into films from this era, it's a shame no one thinks to make them technologically on par with modern day fare. All in all, this one's a winner. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun little (incredibly staged) largely unknown comedy about a child like Ice Cream vendor & his love & unintentional entanglement with a murder. The humour is dated by the film has a likeable way to it & when you suspend your belief it's fun to watch. It's by no means timeless but it's enjoyable & Jack Carson gives a solid performance. Enjoy the entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
