Musings On 20th Century Pop Culture by Psychotronic Paul
Zelma O'neal would have been a huge comedy star in film a la Joan Davis or later Martha Raye if the powers that be back then had opened their eyes to see her unique talent. I'm grateful for this film that does exist, it and she are very special.
I wholeheartedly agree. She is in Peach O' Reno with Wheeler and Woolsey, which I haven't seen. If, as I suspect, Zelma was relegated to an ingenue role in this, the powers that were at RKO really missed an opportunity, big time. She's at least as funny as Bert n' Bob - and those guys make me laugh.
