Sexy Screwball Comedy

This early Mack Sennett comedy featuring Carole Lombard is a classic example of the use of 'cheesecake' - sexy girls - to promote a motion picture, and is a formula oft used even today. Lombard is Phyllis, the blonde daughter of a matchmaking mama. Mama McNitt married widower Cornelius McNitt, who also has a lovely daughter Sally. Now mama McNitt, played by Daphne Pollard, wants to make sure that her daughter gets chosen by eligible bachelor Larry Lodge, played by Matty Kemp, and mama will do everything in her power to put daughter Phyllis next to Larry. Of course it wouldn't be much fun if she were immediately successful, so the fates will bring step-sister Sally and Larry together, then apart, then together again, then apart again before finally tying the knot, but fear not because while the matchmaking mama was not successful in bringing Larry and her daughter Phyllis together, Phyllis will find a husband before the comedy is finished . . . and guys, between the leggy Sennett girls, and Sally Eilers' legs, and the unknown actress playing Marjorie Marlboro with her strategically torn dress, this 1929 comedy shows more skin than most 1929 men saw in their lifetime before this. You may also notice the early use of two strip color by Technicolor. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
