A Few Laughs
Goofy Movies Number One (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Early Pete Smith series is a spoof of going to the movies with the main gag being the narration over silent films. The first part of the film is a fake news reel where we see "footage" of a Harvard/Yale rowing event. The second part is a fake movie called "Minnie the Pretzel Twister" with Cynthia Goosefeather. The film tells the story of a pretzel twister who hopes to find love. I'm a major fan of silent movies and I'm sure some might find this film offensive but I thought it was rather neat. Not all of the jokes work but for the most part I think the film contains some fine laughs even if the 8-minute running time seems too long. I enjoyed the first part of the film the most as the fake newsreel had many great gags about fans and those who would watch rowing.
