"Crazy House" is a terrible short from MGM but I do recommend you see it! Yes, this is because it's in glorious two-color Technicolor AND sound--making it a rather advanced film for the day. Plus, the ending is pretty funny and does a bit to make up for how lame the rest of the film is...and it's awfully lame.
The film consists of the not particularly funny comic Benny Rubin checking himself into a sanitarium. However, this place is ridiculously over the top and about as subtle as a stripper at a Baptist barbecue! Again and again, the guy running the place (Vernon Dent) as well as the staff and patients behave as if they completely lost their minds. It's filled with lots of unfunny and insensitive jokes about the mentally ill and NONE of them are funny until the end...then it becomes violent and quit funny for about 30 measly seconds!
