About half of A TALE OF TWO MICE . . .
11 June 2015 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . (a "Merrie Melodies" animated short released in 1945 by Warner Bros.) is devoted to the anthropomorphic by-play between two uncredited (and now long-dead) human comics (who apparently are being impersonated themselves!). But companies such as Turner Home Video insist upon throwing such anachronistic crumbs upon the still waters for the consumption of Millenials who no longer have a grandparent alive (or Alzheimer's-free) to explain the back story as to who this lampooned and forgotten comic team was. (Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.) Apparently, no one who works for Turner Home Video has such a grandparent, either, or sufficient internet skills to corroborate an answer on IMDb or Wikipedia. Perhaps America needs to outlaw the digital preservation or distribution of anything created prior to the 21st Century. This not only would create some "elbow room" for new artists, but it would free our courts of the bogus copyright lawsuits with which they're now swamped. Plus, such a prohibition would make the production of explanatory notes about "film" from the 1900s a moot point. Explication of this type has become frustratingly hit-or-miss nowadays; A TALE OF TWO MICE is just one of a million possible illustrations. After all, TCM channel host Robert Osborne won't live forever!
