Editorial Reviews

1) TWIN HUSBANDS (1946-USA). With LEON ERROL, DOROTHY GRANGER, JASON ROBARDS. Double trouble when Leons "twin brother" comes to visit just when Leon leaves town! The eternal henpecked husband in a dual role and twice as funny.

2) DEAR! DEER! (1942-USA). With LEON ERROL. One of the most popular stars of sound comedy shorts, in a typically uproarious henpecked-husband farce. Leon returns from a wild convention, and tells his wife he was on a hunting trip. When a young lady suddenly appears and tells him shes "Mrs. Errol," Leon thinks he must have married her while on his drunken spree. Before she can explain that shes his sons bride, Leon tries to pay her off, then to hide her from his suspicious wife. Other mistaken identities and complications create a delightfully bewildering maze of coverups and confessions. (And whats that deer head doing in the middle of all of this?) Great fun!

3) BEWARE OF REDHEADS (1945-USA). With LEON ERROL. One morning, a rather aggressive redhead lays siege on Leons office. Poor Leon is hung over from a wild party he attended the previous evening. It seems that he had met the woman at the party and somehow her compact ended up in his coat pocket. She has come to retrieve it before her husband notices that it is missing. The plot thickens as Leons own better half arrives on the scene. It just so happens that she already has found the compact and has come to demand an explanation. What follows is one fiendishly funny and cleverly devised marital farce.

4) SWEET CHEAT (1949-USA). With LEON ERROL, VINCE BARNETT. Leon is (as usual) having a row with his wife. Mrs. Errol is irate because Leon has just returned from a business trip to Buffalo, where she is convinced he has another woman stashed away. The fun starts when Leons boss dispatches him on yet another junket to Buffalo and Mrs. Errol conspires to follow him and catch him in the act!

70 minutes total.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got to Dodge Those Rolling Pins! August 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
"Leon Errol: Henpecked Two Reelers" contains four gems of comedy-of-errors marital farces, starring the surprisingly effective team of Leon Errol and Dorothy Granger.
First of the shorts is "Twin Husbands" in which Leon plays the dual role of himself and "twin brother Philip" from England. "Philip Errol" also appears in "Dear! Deer!," the second of the shorts, as Leon's son, newly commissioned in the U.S. Navy. Beware, viewers! There is a Leon "in-joke" in play here. The real "Philip Errol" was Leon's uncle, a British subject who came to live with the Sims family (Leon's birth name is Leonce Errol Sims) in Sydney, Australia shortly after the comedian's birth in July 1881.
Philip was the source of Leon's popular character, Lord Basil Epping, who appeared in the Mexican Spitfire movies. Leon imitated his Uncle Phil's every mannerism--the duck-footed walk, the shoulders hunched forward, even the hand flapping whenever he clasps both hands behind his back. When I first saw this, I thought, "Not nice, Leon--imitating your boarding school headmaster." But then I found out about Uncle Phil, so I suppose it's all right if Leon keeps the lampoon all in the family.
The team was so popular back in the 1940s that moviegoers actually thought the couple was married. However, when Dorothy entered kindergarten back home in New London, Ohio, Leon, age 35, was already a vaudeville star, a member of Ziegfeld Follies with W.C. Fields and husband to former stage actress Stella Chateleaine, whom he married in 1906--six years before Dorothy was even born.
Talk about the Age of Innocence--the naughtiest bit comes at the beginning of "Beware of Redheads," when Myrna Dell, who plays "Gloria Richards," the redhead who loses her compact to Leon, tries to get into his office.

my HIGHEST recommendation is that you read the EXCELLENT review by

EXCELLENT!
I agree with her assessment, and couldn't praise these short films
any better, myself, and I am never out of breath for words of praise...

EXCELLENT!
