A personal favorite

I had lost my only copy of this gem several years ago and checked IMDb often for news of the DVD but no luck. Fortunately a friend located a VHS copy which is now treasured like a family heirloom. Not a stretch here, Short's hysterical characters and the supporting cast - absolute gold. The interleaving story lines and short cameos - mixed with familiar classic characters - Grimley, Rogers, - the Candy and Levy scene and my favorite, Irving Cohen. I had rarely seen Montgomery Clift but after this, - the real Clift conjures up images of Short's version. The Cohen sketch at the awards ceremony pulled together by Flaherty's classic Heston squint and dead-on mannerisms - still one of the funniest sketches I have ever seen. If you can somehow locate a copy and if you enjoyed SCTV - you will love it.
