Description

"Riding on Air" (1937) is a pleasing Brown vehicle (the opening bit with Brown bathing in a bathroom filled with gadgetry is amusing). As a small town reporter, he gets himself--and eventually the whole town--taken to the cleaners by a flim-flam man. A rousing finale in an airplane closes the film as Brown must prove his innocence to the town & thwart the bad guys in a dogfight.

"When's Your Birthday?" (1937) is an offbeat & occasionally delightful farce about a banker's obsession with astrology; such that he refuses to have his wedding on a certain date because it's unfavorable in the stars. Upsetting his fiance & incurring the wrath of his future in-laws (the dad is played by "the king of the slow burn", Edgar Kennedy), a despondent Brown works as a busboy at a club. There, his gift for astrology catches the attention of some high-stakes gamblers who exploit his gift to win bets while giving Brown the success he's always craved. Some strange plot twists force Brown to compete in the boxing ring, which has some hilarious turns: Superstitious Brown tries to stall the fight until a full moon appears, which is in his favor!
