Charley Chased

No doubt about it, Charley Chase is an acquired taste for some. Speaking for myself, I have always liked his un-bounded optimism of a comedy creation. Very entertaining song and dance numbers would sneak into his films at un-expected moments and if you need any other reason to check these shorts out, the fact that his frequent co-star (and real life lover) Thelma Todd would appear occasionally is enough for me!
Here is a prime example of a very rare one-sheet to the Hal Roach Comedy short. I love the art deco look! The young lady so taken by Mr. Chase that she literally melts into the ice!
