Lloyd Hamilton and Bud Duncan made up a comedy team in the teens as 'Ham and Bud.' Ham was the big fat one, looking a little like a seedy Oliver Hardy with a bad walrus mustache, and Bud looking a lot like a seedy adult Micky Rooney. They played a couple of vicious tramps who wandered into random situations involving lots of violence. This was supposed to be funny. It usually wasn't.
This one is not only unfunny, it's downright offensive. Here Bud gets covered in blackface and dressed up in what is supposed to be Maori gear, so that Ham can pretend to be an explorer and collect money from giving lectures. Awful.
