To Database Managers Re: Correction for SCTV 90
17 January 2006 | by (L.A.) – See all my reviews

John Candy played YOSH Schmenge and Eugene Levy played STAN Schmenge. The names are reversed in your listings.

Here is a quote from the The New York Times Movies Review of The Last Polka: The Last Polka 1984 - Parody/Spoof/Satire/Mockumentary/Showbiz Comedy

Type: Features

Rating: NR (Suitable for Children) Running Time: 54 minutes

Directed by: John Blanchard

PLOT DESCRIPTION This HBO comedy special is a send-up of Martin Scorsese's The Last Waltz. Scorsese's film, it will be recalled, recorded the final concert of the rock group The Band. Polka deals with the rise and fall of that fabulous Lutonian twosome, the Schmenge Brothers. John Candy is Yosh Schmenge, and Eugene Levy is Stan Schmenge. "And ve are...der Happy Vanderers."
