He'll Do It With His Little Hatchet
5 July 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Barbara Jo Allen -- renamed 'Vera Vague' by the mighty minds of the movie industry -- is to be married to Stephen Roberts, but her aunt, Lois Austin, shows her a newspaper showing that a serial axe murderer -- also played by Mr. Roberts. After some mild shenanigans, the axe murderer shows up and Miss Allen goes with him, thinking him her bridegroom.

It's a Jules White comedy short, which means the gags are big, loud, and faked, and the reactions are likewise. Miss Allen had been playing the Vera Vague character, which she had invented, since 1940 in the movies. Earlier she had been a radio actor, and before that a Sorbonne student born on 5th Avenue in New York.
