Description by OLDIES.com:

Leon Errol (1881-1951) was a legend in vaudeville long before he ever set foot on a soundstage. The Australian-born funnyman starred in and directed the Ziegfeld Follies on Broadway alongside such fellow luminaries as W.C. Fields and Fanny Brice. Hollywood beckoned, and Errol appeared in studio features such as the all-star cast Alice in Wonderland (1933), the classic 1941 Fields comedy Never Give a Sucker an Even Break, and the Universal horror sequel The Invisible Man's Revenge (1944). His greatest success was in RKO's popular "Mexican Spitfire" series co-starring Lupe Velez, in which Errol played the dual roles of Uncle Matt Lindsay and Lord Basil Epping. In addition, he made six short two-reel comedies a year for the studio beginning in 1934. Shortly after completing the final short, Too Many Wives (1951), Errol died of a heart attack in Hollywood. He has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

This latest collection of 6 vintage comedy shorts from Errol's long-running affiliation with RKO Pictures offers a side-splitting glimpse into the comic magic that entertained millions of moviegoers. Dear! Deer! even has actress Lydia Bilbrook playing Leon's wife just as she did in the "Mexican Spitfire" films.
