Dennis O'Keefe and Mabel and Gertie

2 posts in this topic

About a year or so ago, TCM aired the fast-paced wartime comedy GETTING GERTIE'S GARTIE, starring Dennis O'Keefe. I thought it was a lot of fun and made a copy of it. 


But it wasn't until recently when I discovered a film he made a year earlier for the same producer (Edward Small)-- that in many ways has a similar storyline. It's UP IN MABEL'S ROOM, which I love so much it gets a perfect score from me on the IMDb. The cast is expertly chosen, and O'Keefe really does have a flair for bedroom farce/comedy. 


Allan Dwan directed both pictures. Would like to hear from others who might have seen these.
