Very Interesting... but FUNNY!
What a mad, mad, mad, mad film this was! I enjoyed seeing all the masters, like Eric Idle, Peter Sellers, Benny Hill (I think he is seen very briefly in the film), Marty Feldman, Margaret Rutherford, Tony Hancock, and many, many other great clown princes of comedy. It mainly focuses on comics not well known in the US and Canada, such as Sid Field and Jerry Desmonde, George Formby, Leslie Fuller, Jimmy Edwards, Robb Wilton, Jack Train (doing a shocking Jimmy Durante impression), Albert Whelan, and others. I mean you'd have to be an 85-year-old Brit to know these guys. In addition, the categories that are included are neat, like "Catchphrase Corner", which has many scenes with George Formby, an impressions section, where the incomparable Max Wall does a nifty Edward Everett Horton impersonation (Eddie himself appears in a scene after this bit), a drag-dressing section, and other stuff like that. For me, I found this movie fun because I noticed that the bits with obscure comics were like those done by comedians anyone would know, like Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, the Marx Brothers, and the Three Stooges. There are also many Groucho Marxian one-liners. I simply enjoyed this film and found it interesting.
