Movie Info

In his last two-reeler for Mack Sennett, W. C. Fields plays small-town barber Cornelius O'Hare. The film's wisp of a storyline concerns an escaped criminal (Cyril Ring), who demands that O'Hare give him a haircut and who is eventually captured by a small boy -- even though our "hero" tries to grab the credit. As if we care a hoot about the plot! Best bits: Fields "babysitting" a troublesome infant; a haphazard shaving session, with the customer barely escaping with his ears and lower lip intact; and all that byplay with a bass fiddle named Lena. The magnificent Elise Cavanna, who played the hyperathletic patient in Fields' The Dentist (1932), appears as the great man's long-suffering wife.
