You’re Darn Tootin’

    I’d probably put this short in my personal Top 5 of L&H’s silent shorts. Stan and Ollie play musicians in a band, but of course, since nothing ever goes right in their universe, they are soon fired from their job after messing up big time. There follows a scene in their boarding house, where they try to hide the fact that they’re out of work, but the cat is let out of the bag eventually. The landlady throws them out when she discovers this. Following this the boys take to the streets with their instruments, and things begin to go wrong again. They try to work as street musicians, but begin quarreling amongst themselves. These little tiffs soon turn into a chain reaction, with practically every single person on the street fighting and ripping one another’s clothes off (in a final reel very similar to that of their lost 1927 short ‘Hats Off,’ only in that short hats and not clothes were being torn off). Not only are there lots of great funny gags, but it’s also a true gem because of the role Stan plays. It’s such a treat to see him standing up for himself for once, refusing to take Ollie’s bullying, and coming across as the smarter more assertive one. This happens very very rarely, so it’s all the more precious to see how he functioned when allowed a different type of role apart from the dim-witted well-meaning simpleton we all know and love. It was also one of their two silent shorts which was directed by Edgar Kennedy (the other being ‘From Soup to Nuts’).

    The boys are fired from the band they play in and upon their landlady finding out they are jobless wastes no time putting them

    out on the street until they can pay their rent. They decide to try their luck as sidewalk musicians only to discover that the

    world is filled with music haters and open manholes. A very funny silent comedy.

    I remembered this film from childhood and I ordered it mostly to show it to my 5 year old. It did not disappoint after all these years. The opening sequence with the band is not as great as the later sequence on the street, but it is still enjoyable to watch Stan & Ollie ruin the concert with their spiteful stupidity. The scene on the street breaks down into a belly-punching, shin-kicking, pants-ripping fiasco that sucks everyone into the vortex of kooky aggression. The final shot of Stan & Ollie walking away in a single pair of pants is funny and touching all at once. While only about 20 minutes long, the film achieves a lot in terms of character and psychology. I showed it to my son to get a break from Cartoon Network and guess what–he loved it!! I wish they would show more of these oldies to the kids instead of the usual crud. Anyway–this one can’t miss!

    In this silent classic, Stan and Ollie play musicians who, at the start of the film, lose their jobs in typical fashion. When their landlady finds out they’re jobless, she insists they immediately hit the streets to play for their rent money. This two-reeler has many classic scenes, two examples: watch for the “loose salt shaker” scene at the dinner table and for the hilarious “pants” sequence at the film’s finale.
