| Here's one for the "Borscht-Belt"
George Jessel was the king of what's known as the "Borscht-Belt" comedians--Jewish comedians who made a name for themselves at Jewish resorts in the Catskills (as they were not allowed in Gentile resorts at that time) as well as on Broadway. His jokes and nasal delivery were very popular at the time among people who frequented these places, but he never caught in in the rest of the country. And, after seeing this film, I can see why he didn't catch on. While a young Georgie was reasonably handsome (compared to what he looked like in my lifetime when he was a lot older) but not all that funny. And, I found his personality more pleasant than his routine. If he had come to Hollywood as a bit player or supporting actor, this film would have been okay. But, he was a comedian and this short just didn't provide any laughs. Sorry,...I really wanted to like it more than I did.
