Storyline

An old roué, Romeo McPip, marries a beautiful young lady who has slept all night in his car. He doesn't tell her that he has a handsome, grown son. Sonny arrives home in time for the wedding ceremony and instantly takes a great liking to his new step-mother, and step-mom thinks he is also swell. Papa McPip thinks his son's attentiveness to his new wife is a tad intrusive, and things get complicated. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Dignity, Always Dignity
4 February 2012 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Hal Roach tried to distance himself from the other comedy short producers not just by making funny ones, but by hiring legitimate stars to act as the centerpiece, around which his studio full of skilled comics could caper. Here it's Claude Gillingwater, most notable for his roles of grouches -- he played the Earl to Mary Pickford's Little Lord Fauntleroy and maintained a specialty in grouches for another ten years -- Shirley Temple always wound up charming him.

In this one he falls in love with Vivien Oakland, who plays a gum-chewing floozy. Gillingwater gets to use a prop bulldog, and the comedy is handled by James Finlayson, Tyler Brooke and Buddy the Dog. It's a little slow off the start, but the final gag is a doozy.
