Borrah Minnevitch and His Harmonica School (1942)

*** (out of 4)

An extremely bizarre and at times untasteful short showcases the title act who really need to be seen to be believed. The film showcases several musical set pieces but in the end it's the weird visuals that really steal the show. We have a wide range of acts, all dealing with harmonicas but the really eye opener are the acts themselves, which include midgets, fat jokes and racial jokes. The performance all do a good job and the music is rather catchy but it's somewhat hard paying too much attention to this when you're eyes are bulging out of you head by what you're seeing. Fans of the weird are certainly going to love this thing. I doubt any other film in history has as many harmonicas but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.
