Better silly than dizzy.

So says street sweeper George Burns to nanny Gracie Allen in a chance encounter where he deliberately confuses her with another girl whom she claims to be. Of course, he shows up for work with a car and driver and a beaver coat, obviously a rich man who works as a street sweeper just to encounter pretty girls. Gracie, claiming that when she was a baby she was very young, is someone that a masher like the Burns character would try to get rid of almost immediately, but for some reason, he hangs around. it all culminates with burn somehow getting Gracie's baby carriage and Gracie ending up with George's trash collection cart. Having seen many of the Burns and Allen shorts as well as their films and later TV show, I found this one not to be as funny because it seems to be trying too hard to come up with hysterical gags and lines. Comedy just happens and when it is forced, it ends up falling flat. still, there's no denying that the chemistry between Burns and Allen is there. Once again Chester Clute shows up here, cast as another street sweeper, and he seems the smart one, having gotten away right after Gracie arrived. A funny gag convolving Gracie baby races this up a notch at the conclusion, but overall I would have to describe this as one of the most disappointing of the Burns and Allen one reel shorts.
