Bromo and Juliet is a 1926 American silent comedy film starring Charley Chase with an appearance by Oliver Hardy. A print of the film survives in the film archive at the Library of Congress. The title refers to Romeo and Juliet and Bromo-Seltzer a brand of antacid.
When a club decides to put on a show that includes the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, Charley's fiancee Madge informs Charley she will only marry him if he plays Romeo. Madge's father also agrees to be in the show but problems arise when both become intoxicated and are pursued by a taxi driver they owe money to and a policeman with them turning the pretentious show into a comedy triumph.
