Review: Watching this, if you didn’t know, you would think that a telephone repair man back in the day could do anything. That’s what makes this film so laughable. A tops in his field telephone repair man goes throughout his workday solving telephone related problems. Along the way he tries his suave ways on the lady clients he meets. In the midst of all this he meets a girl who finally falls for his lame charms. She in turn gets unwittingly involved with a scumbag who uses her to rob her boss of some bonds. Then…telephone repair man to the rescue. Words can’t describe how lame this film is. Pat O’Brian didn’t have much range as an actor and it shows in this. There are so many laughable moments I can only mention a few cause it would ruin for anyone who wants to watch this lame time piece. First off, what telephone repair man has the skills to cut any kind of live electrical wires? One scene has a building burning and for some reason they need him to get to the top of a burning building and cut telephone wires. Who knows what purpose this serves but in the process he decides there are live electrical wires and he just takes some pliers/snips and cuts them. This is beyond ridiculous. Not gonna happen folks unless he intended to make himself a charcoal briquette in the process.. After this he jumps off the building and lands in a fireman’s net to safety. With this act he’s the king of the day. LOL..what a joke. The funniest of all is the end fight scene. It could very well be the worst fight scene in film history. To set up this fight I’ll start off with..they kidnap the repair man and are dragging him back to their car to leave and the whole of the telephone repairmen from the company come to his rescue. Mind you, all these crooks trying to take him away are all armed. When the repairmen arrive and decide to try and save him, all these crooks just run at em like it was WWI. I mean, these guys have guns and they decide to fight? Gimme a break. The fighting in this is so funny it’s worth watching just for that. It’s so bad you’ll spit up you soda and chips while watching it. I will say this was an early 30’s film so they hadn’t gotten the realistic look of fighting by then but if your a filmmaker and want to do a film with fighting, watch this and see what not to do. For me, this was a real joke of a film. Not even funny or believable at any point. Bad script, stupid premise and 65 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.
