Synopsis: J. Effingham Bellweather plays golf despite many slapstick setbacks.


Reaction: Nothing particularly wrong here, but this kind of humor has been done to death since Fields' day. Not his fault. He's great at it and this is a fine example of this kind of humor.


Personal Rating: 6/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The picture of Bellweather on the wanted poster shows Fields in costume for his Fatal Glass of Beer sketch. It obviously is taken from a stage presentation of the well-tried routine as the comedian would not film it until 1933.
  • According to the wanted poster among the offenses that Bellweather has committed are "Eating spaghetti in public" and "Telling the facts of life to an Indian."
  • The film makes reference to an invention that was very new in 1930. W.C. Fields' character asks the hotel clerk: "Any telegrams? Cablegrams? Radio? Television?"
