This is insanely, oxygen-depleting laughter-inducing FUNNY stuff. Using public-domain serial footage and dubbing it into a faux noir story with occasional new B&W material, this is laugh-out-loud, fall over funny. Loads of cliches stand on their heads and dance, and the title isn't explained until the v-e-r-y last moment. Help destroy wimpy music - catch this however you can!
