| Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy are amusing enough in Double Talk
This is a Vitaphone short starring Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. The last one is a dummy who is allowed to be by himself a few times like in the bathtub and with a hard-of-hearing woman who wants to adopt him. Anyone who knows about Bergen and seen him in his vintage appearances shouldn't be surprised to see his lips move when you see Charlie talk. The voice of Charlie and the way he says some of his jokes made me laugh and some of visual touches were also funny enough like when he spits water or makes a woman's wig go up. This was one of several shorts Bergen made for Warner Bros. before he gained great fame as the star of radio. So on that note, I rather liked Double Talk.
