I did find that it picked up somewhat in the second half.
Well, now wait a sec...Shemp_diesel answered the call for the tie-breaker before I did and saw to it that Sgt Dare was declared the winner as far as i know. I just submitted my latest entry here for a goof since I thought the contest was over. I do stand by Ichabod Slipp, but only for fun since I thought we were just kind of mopping up to let us sore losers get in a last dig. I agree that Shemp_diesel wins, no argument. Except it's Ichabod Slipp.
Since you open it up again, which I wouldn't have, I don't care about the contest. It's Ichabod Slipp. Neener neener neener. Start with the name and go from there to all MacDonald's villian parts. I lost the first time, but now you've brought it up again, so, starting with the name and every subsequent and in fact previous role, it's Ichabod Slipp. He's slime. He's dirt. He wins.
YIKES! This reconstructed remake sure is a mess!
In my opinion, TRIPLE CROSSED isn't quite as bad as HORSING AROUND (1957), but it's pretty darn close!
At least some of Shemp's brief appearances were quite noticeable to me, including his yell from within the fireplace, and the brief appearance of one of his forearms. However, the most glaring instance of all comes at about the 14:12 mark of the film, when dressed like Santa Claus, Shemp's "bearded" face, and much of his left side is quite visible from behind the door in the old HE COOKED HIS GOOSE (1952) footage!
Out of 10, TRIPLE CROSSED gets 3 Triple Crossed Buns, and I'm being a bit generous!
Tony, has it occurred to you that since most of us slogged through these things over a year ago and posted truthfully that we never wanted to watch them again, that you may be the only person on the planet watching them now, since so few of us watched then, and that you may be the last person on the planet who will ever watch them? This is an achievement of some sort, I guess. Or rather two achievements, I guess. Congratulations are in order, I guess.
Yes sirree! I figure you can do Educationals, and I'll find someething else to review afterwards.
You've piqued my interest. I've only seen maybe a handful of his post 1931 Roach shorts, and that isn't one of them.
What did you think of ROUGH SEAS (1931)? The old adage is that sequels are rarely as good as the original film but I thought ROUGH SEAS beat HIGH C's by a mile. Lots of fun.
I finished this set. Watching these in order, you can really sense the Chase talkies found their groove with the 1931 releases. The 1930 crop certainly wasn't without highlights, but the 1931 releases were more consistently good. The only 1931 release I'd rate less than good was the first, THUNDERING TENORS.
I'm eager to see where the Chase talkies go from here. Bring on vol 2!
