I think I wet my pants I laughed so hard.
9 November 2004 | by (Los angeles, California) – See all my reviews

My cousin and I saw this movie when it came out in the early 50s.

We were like about 12 years old, the perfect age for this movie.

I think I wet my pants I laughed so hard. And yes, the balsa rocks. There is a fight scene where they are throwing rocks the size of cars at each other. Also I recall a scene in a gold mine where the villain is going to blow up Slapsie. The scene got so silly the cast was laughing at it. This was way before Sid Ceasar of any of the other crazy satire that started in the early 60s. It was way ahead of its time (of course I'm going on a 40 year old memory here). I think it was even before Mad magazine. It was the most insane thing I had ever seen. We couldn't believe it. Boy, would I like to get a copy, or even just see it again.
