STEP LIVELY, JEEVES (1937)

A follow-up to the surprisingly enjoyable THANK YOU, JEEVES (see below), but this time, 20th/Fox didn’t even try to honor P. G. Wodehouse ’s great creation. Bertie Wooster is nowhere to be found (!) so Jeeves has to play the duped dope. (He goes to America on a trumped-up inheritance fraud gambit.) Taken on its own merits as a formulaic B movie -- comic gangsters, comic society types, rival reporters, etc. -- this isn’t much worse than a lot of similar factory product, but as a wasted opportunity, it’s pretty damn appalling.
