MISS POLLY (Theatrical Release USA 1941)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì 

Miss Polly—short film—plays like slapstick comedy but the comedy runs flat. The story is simple but the acting trails shallowly along behind the story which leads to audience frustration and a deep wish to move it along. The inevitable question becomes “WHY?” is this production important to make.

Miss Polly, a romantic old soul, changes the rigidness of a small town’s moral character.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Maybe. Know that this film is dated and not very comical or meaningful.
