I'm an O & J fan, but this film is just plain AWFUL! The concept of the film is interesting -- the boys want to make a film at Universal, are turned down, and make their OWN film. There are cameos by almost every artist on the film lot and a lot of interesting "behind-the-scenes" action. The problem is that FAR too many people are crowded into this film, and O & J "get lost in the shuffle"! And, they spend too much time with Cass Daley (I own over 700 films & never heard of her!). She strikes me as a young "Minnie Pearl". If you could cut out all the musical numbers & just keep O & J (& Shemp Howard -- he's GREAT in this film!), you'd have a good it is, it's a mish-mosh that doesn't go anywhere. No wonder Universal "didn't want to do it"!

Did You Know?


For the record: Universal Pictures Corporation did not have a film exchange in every country. Consequenty, Universal films in Costra Rico, Ecuador, Guatemala. Hondurus, Nigaragua and El Salvador were distributed there by their Panama exchange... Universal Films [pa]; Universal films in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay were distributed by Universal Films Argentina S. A. [ar] and Universal films in Peru and Bolivia were distributed by Universal Pictures Corporation of Peru [pe]. And have been correctly displayed that way for nearly two decades until some contributor decided to Create a fabricated film-exchange in nine countries that didn't have a Universal Pictures film-exchange within their borders. They most likely had film-exchanges for other USA companies but not Universal. And the company name that distributed Universal films in the Philippines was...Universal Pictures Corporation of Far East [ph]. It was not Acme Films [ph]. That company was the Philippines distributor of Republic Pictures Corporation films. And, for the record, in 1943(because of a little "something" called World War Two), USA-produced films had no distribution links in German or Japanese occupied countries...such as the Philippines or France and especially not in Germany or Japan.

Prosecutor: Then where's Manhattan?
Roco: Between Brooklyn and Jersey. Everybody knows that.
