Storyline

Connie Chase receives a letter from Chaseville in Chase County, Kentucky, informing her that her lawyer husband, Jimmie, is a descendant of the Blue Grass State Chases. Assuming that they are now aristocratic heirs, they take a trip to visit their wealthy relations. They soon discover that Chaseville is a back-country hick town, and that their kin are dirt-poor illiterates who ambulate in bare feet. Nevertheless, Pappy (Charley Chase) could use Jimmie to defend him in a breach of promise lawsuit. Miss Lavinia Watkins sued him for not tying the knot, after pledging to marry her. The case is resolved as the courtroom becomes a dance floor, and everyone celebrates. Written by Lew Amack

Southern Exposure (1935)

*** (out of 4)

Charley Chase short has him and his wife getting a letter from his relatives in Kentucky. Chase, thinking the relatives are rich, travels down there but it turns out they're just a bunch of dumb rednecks. I guess being from Kentucky myself I could get bent out of shape over all the offensive stereotypes but hell, they were funny. All the stereotypes are so over the top that I quite often found myself laughing very hard but with that in mind I'm not sure how others would look at this short. There's some politically incorrect humor and another scene where chase talks about "making love", which I was shocked to see since this film was made after the Pre-Code era.
