| Very Close Veins is a funny Ben Blue short with a brief appearance of Shemp Howard
In this short, Ben Blue has quite a bulging vein in his knee. The doctor recommends a trip to Alaska to cool that off. So he goes...Plenty of funny scenes and lines with a special treat in seeing Shemp Howard in the Alaska sequence constantly spitting out coins! So that's a recommendation of Very Close Veins.
