Description by OLDIES.com:
DON'T BE NERVOUS (1929): Ham is confused for his identical twin, notorious gangster "Nick the Sheik". Though he initially enjoys the affections of the racketeer's girlfriend, sexy flapper Rita La Roy, disaster looms when both the Sheik's mob and the cops come calling. La Roy shared the screen with Marlene Dietrich in Blonde Venus (1932).
PRIZE PUPPIES (1930): With a landlady out to kill him over weeks of unpaid rent, Ham tries to skip town on the next train. He gets mistaken for the judge of a dog show, but is quickly found out when he grades the canines by how shapely their owners' legs are. Director Alf Goulding also made some of Harold Lloyd's best work, including Ring Up the Curtain (1919) and Haunted Spooks (1920).
POP'S PAL (1933): Hamilton makes his penultimate film appearance here alongside fellow silent clown Billy Bevan. John Harron and Josephine Hill, recently married, inadvertently invite their warring fathers to dinner. When Ham shows up for a business meeting with Harron, the young husband must get the bickering in-laws out of the house before they ruin everything.
BONUS: COLONEL STOOPNAGLE'S CAVALCADE OF STUFF (1938): Radio comedian F. Chase Taylor, better known as Colonel Stoopnagle, hosts this burlesque of movie newsreels, shot in Norwalk, Connecticut. Taylor had previously appeared on screen in Paramount's International House (1933) and was the cousin of famed horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Nice to see these very rare shorts from this early screen comedian. Wasn't aware of much of his work, but enjoyed these little gems showcasing this talents. Prints are okay for age of material but sound was sometimes affected by low buzzing sound which would become more apparent when there was no dialogue. Would be nice to see more of Hamilton's work if available.
