Endowed with a restless and an adventurous spirit, Dennis P. McHale (Victor McLaglen) , a gifted civil engineer, is on the run from the law. Leaving his wife (Lois Wilson) and son (Regis Toomy) behind, McHale globe-trots till he ends up in Venezuela, where he is hired to organize a revolution. As fate would have it, McHale - now hiding behind the pseudonym ‘Captain Easter - finds his lost son Pat in this unlikely place, perusing a life similar to the one he was leading. A rejuvenated McHale now uses his wit and bravado to save his son from the firing squad and the President of Venezuela (Henry B. Walthall) from conceding power.

Running Time: 71 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: PG


"It is commonly believed that director John Ford managed to get the best out of the tall and imposing British born actor Victor McLaglen, but the gifted McLaglen has given a memorable performance in this timelessly appealing adventure as well, despite the fact that it was directed by another talented director, Ford Beebe. Victor McLaglen, the son of a clergyman, had lived quite a colorful life before he entered the movies. His escapades as a World War I veteran, a farmhand in Canada, a performer in a circus and a prizefighter seem to have served him well his portrayal of Dennis P. McHale aka ‘Captain Easter’. His charismatic smile and impressive physique would have convinced any director to pick him for this role, which he plays with aplomb in this vintage classic from the A2ZCDS treasure chest. The intriguing plot has many twists and turns, which keep you constantly engrossed, while the locations selected for the filming are fabulous, providing the appropriate setting for the story. Despite the fact that they had only bit roles, Lois Wilson and Regis Toomy have put in marvelous and endearing performances as well. This is a fascinating tale of a man whose adventurous spirit leads him away from his family into a world that showed little mercy or gratitude. Experience the remarkable narrative in this classic old movie, which keeps you absorbed for the better part of an hour."


’Laughing at Life’ is the ultimate ‘banana republic’ film and is amazing in its scope and topography. The plot of this timeless movie is so delightfully intricate that I had no choice but to suspend disbelief till it was over. The human elements are real and cannot fail to strike responsive chords. I’m completely charmed by what director Ford Beebe has done in this movie."
Tomas J. Albuquerque, (Rock Springs, WYOMING)

If a single term must be used to describe this movie (‘Laughing at Life’) I would use ‘idyllic imperfection’. The story and setting made me nod in agreement – yes, these are the yearnings of the heart, and yes, they sure can take us to strange places. And when pure boredom with the straight-and-narrow finally causes one to become unconventional, one might just find oneself in Venezuela – and in the midst of Revolution…"
