Flicker Flashbacks No. 3, Series 2 (1945)

* (out of 4)

Ward Wilson narrates this "comedy" that takes clips from two silent movies and tries to make them funny. THE PROSPECTOR'S DAUGHTER and HIS DESPERATE DEED are the films in question here and I think it's fair to say they both look a lot more interesting without the added narration. I'm a silent film fan but I'm not so uptight where I'm going to be offended by someone trying to make fun of them. There were several series that did this and Pete Smith could usually get a few laughs but that's not the case here because this thing is just downright dreadful from start to finish. Not a single line of dialogue is funny and not once did I even crack a smile. I can see this type of short being made in the 30s as silents were still in people's mind but I can't help but think that this thing would just come off as odd in 1945. I'm really not sure what the point was but it's clearly one of the worst shorts I've seen on Turner Classic Movies. This was directed by the same man who would later bring us 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, MR. MAJESTYK and SOYLENT GREEN so it proves everyone must start somewhere.
