The Wrong Magic
1 August 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly are probably the only female comedy act in the history of film and of course it would be Hal Roach who was never shy about experimentation who would put them together. They were pretty magical and both like Hope and Crosby and successful careers as single performers. When Thelma died later in 1935, Patsy was teamed with Zasu Pitts, but it wasn't the same.

But when we talk about magic, we're not talking prestidigitation when these two take jobs as magician's assistants. That's because they have a similar lack of coordination as vaudeville hoofers, so what's left to do.

The magician here is Herman Bing who could show exasperation to rival Billy Gilbert. His reaction shots to the various foulups these two do in a performance are even funnier than Kelly and Todd. The Missing Stooge is worth seeing for him alone as well as Thelma and Patsy.
