Behind the Closed Doors
23 July 2006 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Another fine short comedy from Charley Chase's peak period. In reality, this can be said about any Chase short I've seen from about 1926 through his last silent short, MOVIE NIGHT, and wonderful shorts keep showing up from other periods, including the times he directed Billy West in the Teens and well into the sound period. So don't miss any of them. They are funny, well-structured and wise.

So what can I say about this movie that might cause you to go look at it in particular, or to notice something that you might not have? Well, it has Eugene Palette and Anita Garvin, both fine comedians, as Charley's brother and his sister-in-law... and their marriage in this movie provide a telling commentary on Charley's marriage to Eugenia Gilbert. Eugene and Anita bicker constantly, breaking Chalrey's crockery, until someone is hurt.... and then their love and tenderness come bubbling out. Charley and Eugenia seem to have a perfect marriage, but at the first sign of trouble...

There is one of Charley's perfectly-timed in-one-door-out-the-other farce sequences. There are very funny gags scattered throughout. And there's Bull Montana in a frilly negligee. That, at least, should make you laugh.
