Standard Burns & Allen stuff.

I've seen quite a few Burns & Allen shorts that they made in the early part of their careers in films. And, I must say that they all seem to blend together, as the plots really are NOT important. Essentially, you toss the pair together and Gracie goes into her ditsy routine with George feeding her straight man lines in order to keep her going. She goes off on all sorts of tangents and then the film ends. In this case, George is working at a hat store and Gracie comes in looking for a hat for her boyfriend. But no matter which hats he shows her, she hates it and asks to see more. Not a lot more to it than that. It's enjoyable but not exactly super-original nor groundbreaking. It is what it is...mildly well done but not a film that sticks with you in any way. If you do want to see this an other Burn & Allen shorts, many (including this one) are currently on YouTube.

Time for a good game of London Bridge.

Meet Gracie Allen, the queen of the malapropism, able to twist common phrases into meaning something completely different. That's what George Burns finds out when she comes into his hat shop to buy a hat for her sweetheart. It turns out that she buys all the hats that her boyfriend wears, but doesn't know the size of his hats, only his suits. She even claims not liking one hat simply because it looks like a hat. much of the banter between Burns and Allen doesn't involve her attempt to buy a hat but her wacky family and situations that no sane person could imagine ever being in. It's more wackiness from Burns and Allen in a one real short that is funny but not hysterical. A reference to professional golfer Bobby Jones is probably the best joke in the whole short, but after the setup begins, you begin to realize that the whole thing is sort of pointless, just an excuse for Gracie to act dizzy and drive sales clerk George batty. Burns and Allen perennial Chester Clute is present, revealing to me that he was the equivalent of James Finlayson to Laurel and Hardy, that touch of luck that they added for consistency and to briefly take the focus off of them.
