the best of times, the worst of times, 15 April 2003
Author: jack_leiber

Jules White, a man often criticized for his weak directing efforts during the "Shemp" era, directs arguably his best short of said era "Scrambled Brains", and in an ironic sort of way, Ed Bernds who's often praised for his classic Shemp shorts, follows up with his "worst". I never was a fan of alot of these 'spur & saddle' films anyway. Terrible effort, but Bernds redeems himself with the next one "The Tooth Will Out".
