Tashlin at the top of his form!
30 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Frank Tashlin is not one of the first names that come to mind when discussing Warner Brothers cartoons. with Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett and Friz Freleng being more well-known. That's not a surprise at all. But it's a bit sad to think that the general public doesn't know more of him, particularly his work in animation. He worked, like many people, for more than one studio and also made the successful switch to live-action direction. A very talented man, to say the least. This short is vintage Tashlin and he handles the material perfectly. Everything here is great. The ending, where Goering and Goebbels suffer a momentary bout of candor that costs them dearly, is absolutely priceless! Hatta Mari is a precursor to Jessica Rabbit, as is Tex Avery's Red character. Only Mari IS BAD-as well as drawn that way! Pay particular attention to the scene in the squadron barracks when the commander displays her wanted poster. Marvelous short and well worth tracking down. Most highly recommended.
