| cut & paste two films into Two Knights...
Interesting... the title card for this film actually says Hal Roach Presents "Two Knights IN Brooklyn", but TCM.com and TV Guide.com have it listed as "Two Knights FROM Brooklyn". At the bottom of the same card, it says "Adapted from Taxi, Mister and The McGuerins from Brooklyn. It opens with William Bendix and Joe Sawyer as Eddie Corbett and Tim McGuerin, flashing back to see how they got their start as cab drivers. For a detailed plot summary, see that section of IMDb. Bendix always played the blue-collar, joe palooka type, mispronouncing words. Also in this compilation are Max Baer and Alan Hale Jr. Hale was the Skipper on Gilligan's Island, and Max Baer was the professional boxer, who appeared in several films, and was whose SON was Jethro Bodine on the Beverly Hillbillies. Also look for Sheldon Leonard, who wrote, directed, and produced about half the TV shows in the 1950s, 1960s & 1970s. He plays Louie Glorio, who runs the nightclub in town. Nothing really new here. I'd suggest watching the two original films from which is was made.
