The opening Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer logo has an "OUT TO LUNCH" sign in front of the circle hiding the lion's head as he roars. The sign then flips up to reveal an animated man trapped inside the lion. The man's hands and feet beat and kick the lion as the man yells "Ow! Ow! Get me outta here!" See more »
MGM's Big Parade of Comedy is just a random compilation of comedy clips with no point that don't do their stars any justice. They've all appeared in funnier films at other studios. They serve up probably the worst clip from the worst Marx Bros. film (Go West). Couldn't they have used A Night At The Opera instead (that was an MGM film)? They just dredge out any comedy star who just happened to appear in an MGM film - they even dish up a silent Joan Crawford film (now there's a comedienne). The only moments of levity for me were when they showed a compilation of Pete Smith comedy shorts (with Dave O'Brien). It also ends abruptly. I'm thankful someone had the good judgement to put it out of its' misery.
