Delicious Drawing Room Comedy

(4 out of 5 stars)

""Up In Mabel's Room" is based on a stage play of the same name. Dennis O'Keefe, Marjorie Reynolds & Gail Patrick star in this bit of fluff. O'Keefe will do anything to keep his ultra-jealous bride from discovering a frilly slip he had given to Mabel on a Mexican Holiday. Complications ensue as others get wind of "a" slip in Mexico and naturally conclude our hero has made a "false step". O'Keefe has to keep one step ahead of his wife and two steps ahead of Mabel, who wants to bring everything out into the open before her upcoming 2nd marriage.Character actors Misha Auer, Charlotte Greenwood, Lee Bowman, John Hubbard, Janet Lambert & Binnie Barnes are also in fine form. The reparte' is quick at this winter weekend getaway. Charlotte Greenwood is the long-legged limber blond actress with some visually funny moments, you know she's the actress who can step over a fence without bending a knee.

As to the DVD quality....You will not be disappointed..The picture and sound on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being a Gotham or Madacy and 5 being a new release) its a 4. There is good contrast and good definition although not crisp and sharp, but there were no artifacts or blotches. The sound is good and even with no hissing or un-even-ness. I've watched on two different TV's and 1 computer monitor each with its own leval of clarity. This has a bonus comedy short "Edgar Kennedy in Rough On Rent" this however is a poor print with poor sound. I hope this helps......"

"This movie, though scandalous in its time, was full of cheezy humor and slapstick. I purchased this movie for my 78 year old mother who has memories of seeing it on "the big screen" with her mother. All she could remember was the title and grandma, a normally conservative woman, laughed so hard she had tears rolling down her cheeks (and she was the preacher's wife!). If you have an older family member that might enjoy a trip back in time, I would highly recommend purchasing this movie."
