This is a very funny sound short for Charlie Chase, playing the Duke of Chasewick, but hired by Dell Henderson to play himself, and disabuse his wife and daughter of any fondness for nobility. Charley gets into a very funny fight at the beginning of this short, and has some lovely support, not only from a young Julie Bishop as Henderson's daughter, but also uninhibited silent comedy pro Gale Henry. James Parrott directs this one, and Charley always seems a little more charming under his brother's direction. The whole thing turns into a bit of a series of revenge on Henderson as Charley leads them in a game of follow the leader. Good physical comedy makes this a fine short comedy -- standard for Charley and not to be missed if the chance arises.
