Four Decades of a Who Was Who in American Screen Comedy
10 August 2012 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

From the moment Joe E Brown is heard narrating, the viewer is in store for a real treat. Scenes from classic silent films are seen with some of the most famous names in motion picture comedy. Chaplin is one of the first followed by Fatty Arbuckle, Charlie Murray, Harold Lloyd, Charley Chase who is seen in rare footage with his wife and two daughters and the list goes on.

The sound era is represented by the likes of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Joe E Brown, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Jack Benny and so many more.

This ten minute entry in the Screen Snapshots series was released in Super 8mm by Columbia in 1973 so there are many prints out there for home movie collectors. It is a wonderful way to start off an evening of classic movie comedy.
