  • The Passionate Plumber: Classic Keaton

    Thanks to TCM, I was finally able to view all the Keaton talkies made in the 1930s. Given the bad press about his problems with studio bosses, alcoholism, and a mismatch of him and Durante, I was expecting the worse. There are a couple of questionable efforts in the series, but I was pleasantly surprised for the most part. The Passionate Plumber is, by far, the best of the group. I don't view Jimmy Durante as a team member with Keaton, in the same vein as Laurel & Hardy. In contrast, I view him as a unique personality and a part of the ensemble of players. The members of this ensemble all contribute to making this a very funny movie, in the French bedroom farce tradition. Durante, Keaton, Polly Moran, Gilbert Roland and the two deceived girlfriends are all highly effective in their roles. There are a lot of great routines, including the mayhem at the casino, the chemistry between Roland and his Spanish spitfire wife/girlfriend and Keaton forced to use his plumbing tools when impersonating a doctor. The film starts off with a classic Keaton gag involving making a big production to fix a cigarette lighter, spoofs the duel at dawn tradition, and has a running gag dealing with insulted Frenchmen getting slapped in the face with a pair of gloves. I would rate this as a very good Keaton vehicle with a great ensemble cast, either silent or talkie.
