This is basically a copy of my review of the first volume. As with vol 1, this Region 1 release WILL play on a R2 DVD player. The prints used for this release are generally very poor, which personally I can live with as I love these comedies, but I felt I had to knock off a star because of the poor quality. There are no extras or subtitles.
This collection of 10 shorts were produced in the 1930's & 40's, and provide almost 3 hours of great comedy entertainment. Edgar Kennedy was a great foil for the legendary Laurel & Hardy in a number of their comedy shorts. Here, the much put-upon Kennedy suffers at the hands of his manipulative wife & her cheeky, leeching mother and brother. Our hapless hero huffs and puffs to no avail, as his resentment builds. The master of the 'slow-burn' continually suffers abuse & ridicule at the hands of family and friends alike. The vastly underrated Edgar Kennedy certainly had great comic timing, and fully deserved his own series of short comedies, which display a true comedy legend at work. Great fun!
