Movie Memories #1 (1933)

** (out of 4)

A rather bland short from Vitaphone has a narrator talking over clips from silent movies but adding his own brand of comedy. Most of the clips scene here are from early (pre-1905) Edison movies and it should go without saying that they're pretty much just used to mock and make fun of. There's one clip of various police walking in front of the camera but this film with pause to make it look like they're posing for a picture. Not very funny. We also get a clip from a movie dealing with a house fire where the narrator gets to joke about how one scene the house isn't on fire while the next it is. I'm going to guess this thing was meant to spoof newsreels but even this attemp at humor doesn't work. This isn't a horrible waste of time but one does wonder if people in 1933 even found it funny.


Release Date:

30 December 1933
