A city slicker from Elmira, NY, speeding through the back woods, gets a look at a lovely woman, a local school teacher, and decides to pose as a mountain man, the last of the McCoys, to get her attention. A skunk and a split in his trousers may derail him before he gets properly started. Then, local whiskey runners think he's an undercover cop. To prove his bona fides, the gang wants him to sing an Appalachian song. Can he deliver a convincing performance and win the mountain gal's heart? Or has he made a serious miscalculation?Written by
A city boy (Charley Chase) tries to win the heart of a country girl (Thelma Todd) by pretending to be a redneck. This early talkie shows once again why Chase is so overlooked as a comedian today. This film has plenty of jokes that fall flat on their face but for the most part they're fun and entertaining. One of the highlights of the film is when the redneck group are doing a square dance and an earlier sequence where Charley must sing a "mountain" song. Another major plus is having Todd on hand as she's certainly charming enough and gets a few good laughs as well.
As of now, none of Chase's Columbia shorts are on DVD but TCM does show them quite often.
