    April Fool
    One of the era's many ethnic (read: Jewish) comedies, this film starred Alexander Carr, a Broadway actor-playwright who made a career out of playing Lower East Side types. This time around, Carr played Jacob Goodman, a former pants-presser turned umbrella tycoon, whose daughter, Irma (Duane Thompson), falls for the handsome nephew (Raymond Keane) of the Goodman's nouveau riche neighbor, Mr. Applebaum (Snitz Edwards). The boy, however, is soon accused of theft; the crime, as Goodman discovers, is actually committed by Applebaum's no-good son, Joseph (Eddie Phillips. Little Baby Peggy (aka Diana Serra Cary), who earlier starred in her own series of 2-reelers, appeared here as one of the Goodman children. Produced by small-time company Chadwick, April Fool was based on a 1915 play written by Carr and Edgar Allan Woolf. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
