Hook, Line and Sinker (1930)

Sadly the copy of this movie I got is pretty rough, but what do you expect I got it for 50 cents at a Dollar General store. It stars the not so funny, almost annoying comedy team of Woolsey and Wheeler. Kind of like a mixture of Laurel and Hardy with Burns and Allen, a little to much slap stick for me, but I don’t care I bought it for Natalie, she again has a small role but a fun one. Woolsey and Wheeler come to help their frequent co star Dorothy Lee turn an old house into a hotel for the rich and famous. But instead of the rich they also get the attention of two rival gangs looking to rob the place of all the valuables the rich patrons will have. Natalie plays a member of one of the gangs whose job it is to seduce Bert Wheeler and get the keys to the safe. Of course all hell breaks lose, a gang war breaks out in the hotel but all ends well. Natalie has a few small scenes but she does have a great scene with Robert and Dorothy and a gun, a little silly, but fun. If you like slap stick comedy and can stand bad picture quality, pick this one up, you can find it usually for a dollar at most dollar stores.
