Breakdowns of 1941 (1941)

*** (out of 4)

This (at the time) unreleased short was mainly shown at Warner company parties at the end of the year for a few laughs but thankfully several of them have become available over the past few years. What we basically have are gag reels with various big players messing up their lines or in some cases messing up sets. The films we see stuff from are THE WAGONS ROLL AT NIGHT with Bogart, TORRID ZONE with Cagney, FOUR MOTHERS and THE SEA WOLF with Edward G. Robinson. Those who don't like the cuss word G.D. will certainly want to skip over this film as I'm going to guess it's said at least three dozen times, which must be a recorded considering how short the actual film is. There's no doubt that many film buffs are going to be amused by seeing some of these screen legends mess up their lines and lose their tempers. One of the best moments happen early on in a scene from TORRID ZONE where Cagney goes to slam on a door on someone but accidentally pushes his hand all the way through the door. We also have some very funny bits between Cagney and Pat O'Brien as their flub their lines and then poke fun at one another. The scenes with Bogart show the actor appearing extremely upset with himself and we even get a few funny bits with James Stewart and John Garfield.
