What was the point?
6 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short film is included as an extra on the disc for the Warner Brothers film "My Dream is Yours". However, after watching it, I really have no idea what the film was even about...it just confused me and left me flat.

The film begins on a crappy ranch. The cook makes barely edible food and the cow hands all sit around complaining about the terrible grub and their terrible jobs. Suddenly, a stranger (Chill Wills) shows up and talks about their jobs and their foods like they are wonderful. He then goes on to talk and talk--and the guys all seem captivated by him. Later, it turns out he is kind of crazy--nice, but crazy.

While I enjoyed Chill Wills' performance, I just don't see what they were trying to do here. And, I can only assume, the filmmakers were also unaware. Rather pointless.
