Swami Shaped Waffles
3 July 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

With the end of short subject production at the Roach studios in 1936, MGM expanded its production of comedy shorts. Unhappily, MGM rarely turned out top comedies, and this short subject is a fairly typical exemplar of the problem: it is overwritten with a plot about two waffle iron heirs breaking up their impending marriage over the shape of waffles. Add in a glum Benny Rubin as an Indian yogi, a couple of pointless songs, director Felix Feist who never seemed to add anything to the mix and two leads with no particular comedy ability and you have this piece. The whole thing is topped off with a dance number that is performed on a giant waffle iron. Like so many of the overproduced MGM comedy shorts, the effect is bizarre, rather than funny.
