What a bore!!
I thought this thing would be more funnier than it was. I mean, I know a film with Mimi Hines, Phil Ford and Charley Weaver (in two roles!!) is not Academy Award winning material, but this thing was disappointing. It is all about how Phil Ford, as Mr. Big, tries to overtake the little town of Apple Valley and turn it into another Las Vegas type place. I had figured that it would be hokey, with some 1960's bad singing, dancing, and cornball comedy all in glorious Technicolor, but it has none of this going for it. In fact, it hasn't got anything going for it. It has been awhile since I fell asleep during a DVD, but this one sure did it to me. It took me two days to get through this snooze-a-thon. Maybe I was expecting low class, but not this low. After the movie, comes a couple of short films, the first one is called "The Enchanted Pot" with Joan Anderson, and it is all about how to cook with Karo Syrup. Catchy little song by the pot and Ms. Anderson. Egads, this was more entertaining than the "Apple Valley" film. The second short film is called "Treat Her With Care" and is some sort of ode to women, and how they are different. Like duhhhhhh!! This one was entertaining also, but not as much as "The Enchanted Pot".
