Though predictable, this Charley Chase-featured comedy short, a bonus on my Laurel and Hardy boxed set (as it has a cameo of them), was a load of laughs. That'll teach Charley not to give them a lift!

Charley Chase struggles with the misfortune of having to spend his holidays on the road with his wife and his nagging mother in law. Charley may be to old at this stage to play this part, and the action in this film isn't the freshest or the most exciting, but it's fairly entertaining. Laurel and Hardy cameo.

I'm projecting a little, but somewhere in here is an inchoate form of the comedy of social embarrassment that would eventually lead to Larry David and "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Chase was a utility player, though, a jack of all trades, so these two reels achieve a nice balance between verbal humour ("Mother knows best") and slapstick (a brakeless jalopy running roughshod over a border guard's feet), with - perhaps most surprisingly - a musical number, staged with all the sincerity of the period, thrown in as a bonus. Skilfully structured, always diverting, yet the reason for its preservation most likely has nothing at all to do with its star: Laurel and Hardy turn up in a cameo appearance as hitchhikers, failing to get anywhere themselves, as ever.
