Hi, Everyone, It will be very hard to watch more than 5 or 10 minutes of this at a time. There are some nice old cars and trains to be seen.
Bing shows no promise here of how good he would eventually become. There is a scene with a lion that has some funny (almost) animation. Also a car going around a hillside road that takes to the air. An old bus going into a lake reminds us how much fun driving was when gas was 10 cents per gallon.
A couple of slow burns. That used to be a comedy form that worked wonders during the silent era. We rarely see it anymore. The slow burn was a person getting mad very, very slowly.
Anyone you see in this movie who looks over 30 is probably over 100 now. This movie is old. Old isn't necessarily bad. Bad is bad, though. This flick is bad.
The narrator/director, Bud Pollard is funny as he looks to his left, our right, to read his cue cards. He is not a good reader.
An antique dealer might enjoy running the movie with the sound turned down. Lots of nice old radios and furniture are on display.
There are some movies that are worse than this. Fury of the Wolfman and Brainiac come to mind. Bing was good in the other "Road" films. Bing also was excellent in High Society with Grace Kelly (True Love) and Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong. He worked with Grace in Country Girl and showed he was a very good actor as well as the singer America loved most at that time.
