An Unintentionally Creepy Short
2 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short film, featuring ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his famous character creation Charlie McCarthy, appears on the DVD release of "The Public Enemy." This was my first exposure to this popular comedy "team," and there's just no getting around how incredibly creepy Charlie McCarthy is. Ever since I saw "Magic," ventriloquist dummies have been ruined for me, and scenes of Charlie making suggestive and lewd comments to an optometrist's nurse don't help to sweeten the deal any.

Ahhhh....to think that there was a more innocent time when ventriloquist dummies and clowns did anything more than give people the willies.....
