A fine example of a Leon Errol comedy short, if you can only see one...
9 February 2005 | by django-1See all my reviews

Most of Leon Errol's comedy shorts (and I think I've seen more than 50 of them!) involved Leon being a married man who is trying to get something past his wife. While the specifics of his character change from short to short, he's pretty much always married. In this one, he has just gotten married and has escaped to Niagara Falls for a honeymoon; at the same time, his son Leon Errol Jr. (who, contrary to the credits listed on this site, is definitely NOT played by Errol, unless his acting skills could add six inches to his height and take thirty years off his age and make him look totally different)has eloped and is honeymooning at the same hotel; AND an old flame of his has just married hotel detective Tom Kennedy (see my review of FREE RENT, where he appeared with Monte Collins) and they are having a secret honeymoon at the same hotel. Now, imagine the "musical chairs" kind of comedy possible with THAT combination, especially when there are two Mr. Errols and two Mrs. Errols, and then a third lady who is mistakenly considered to be a Mrs. Errol!! WEDTIME STORIES has everything that's good about Leon Errol comedies in one film. Errol's exasperated persona, rubber face, and brilliant comic timing made him a star for decades. RKO continued to churn out shorts with him for almost 15 years, yet audiences never got tired of him. It's time for a Leon Errol revival. Perhaps TCM (who own the RKO library, I think) could start playing these regularly?
