Those Axis Stooges
31 May 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Nazty Nuisance is the kind of World War II propaganda film that really hasn't worn well with time. In fact this is the kind of film that rarely saw the light of day after the revelation of the Holocaust. Reducing, Hitler, Mussolini, and the Japanese to the level of the Three Stooges after that just wasn't funny.

This film was produced by Hal Roach who was the genius of so much screen comedy that has stood the test of time. Nazty Nuisance just isn't in the category of a good Laurel&Hardy film.

Bobby Watson who played Hitler on call in so many films good and bad gets a summons from a tropical island nation with whom the Nazis want to sign a treaty and then break the treaty when it becomes inconvenient. But the chief Ian Keith won't negotiate with no one, but the head man. Hitler was going to go alone, but his allies Mussolini played by Joe Devlin and Japanese warlord Sukiyaki played by Johnny Arthur hear about the trip and want to come along.

In the meantime a stranded American PT Boat crew led by Emory Parnell and Frank Faylen are on the island and when they see the three dictators there, the crew goes into action. Not kill them mind you and maybe end the war quicker, but put pepper in their soup course while dining with the chief.

Stuff like that which is great in the usual run of Hal Roach films, just doesn't cut it here.
