This Pete Smith Specialty looks at the annoying types of people we have all come into contact with when going to the movies. They include those who sit down, then take off their coats and scarves; people with aisle seats who stick their feet in the aisle; people who put their knees on the back of your seat; and loud snackers. Smith also fantasizes as to how we would punish such movie-goers. Written by

More often than not, shorts are cool. They pick an interesting topic, and maintain a focus that is usually a creative and unique view.
We tend to have low standards for shorts from the the 40's or older. Speaking for myself, just reliving a viewpoint from the past is fun enough, add the usually creative angle the short has, it should be an enjoyable experience.
HOWEVER, this time, Pete Smith missed the boat. The topic could have been interesting enough, but his examples were lame and poorly acted. I can only imagine an audience in 1944 watching this short. If better done, it could have been a hoot to that audience, but I imagine it was a waste of their 11 minutes, as it was mine.
Don't waste your 11 minutes...
