Dog Shy1926

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.9
Charley Chase’s dog shy drifter happens upon an upper crust farce when he picks up a telephone left off the hook. On the other side of the line is a young woman who’s been promised to a dreary snob by her parents. Chase gets inside the family mansion as a butler but there's hardly any time to rescue his damsel in distress. As one title card reads, “Twenty flappers in the house. And Charley is still trying to find THE ONE GIRL.” Director Leo McCarey masterfully arranges the slow building comedy so that one gag trips off another: Chase’s battle to get the family dog in the tub ends with the girl's aristocrat suitor drinking bathwater in his coffee. The whole cast is howling by the end.

Charley Chase and Le McCarey created smart, as well as funny, films, with impeccable timing. This was the first time I'd seen anything from either of these artists, and I enjoyed it immensely.
