Pretty Eyeful...er, awful
18 December 2002 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Charles Kemper stars in this short as a man who had become an "Eyetestometrist," and who hopes to marry his girl. Kemper isn't very funny at all. Danny Kaye plays a man with a heavy accent and really bad eyesight who has the misfortune to be Kemper's first patient. Kaye is fairly funny.
