Storyline

Writer Neil Simon's movie The Sunshine Boys (1975) has at its core the subject of a comedy team, most specifically a vaudeville comedy team. As such, the Friar's Club is holding a soirée honoring the movie and its creative team of Simon, and stars Walter Matthau, 'George Burns' and Richard Benjamin, with a plethora of comedy veterans providing commentary on the movie, the history of comedy in American entertainment and their favorite comedians of all time. Burns provides his own assessment of who is the best. Although the characters of the Sunshine Boys in the movie are an amalgam of many comedians, Simon acknowledges that it is primarily about and an homage to the vaudeville comedy team of Smith & Dale (Joe Smith & Charles Dale).

The Remnants of Short subjects
3 January 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a short feature intended to boost interest in the filmed version of THE SUNSHINE BOYS but for the fan of old movies like me, the treat is seeing footage from a Friar's Club dinner that was conducted to, seemingly, be used in clips for this.

We get to look at some people who are now dead, not only people like Alan King, and the movie's stars and director, but particularly Joe Smith of Smith and Dale, the comedy pair whose act inspired this film.

The print that runs on Turner Classic Movies is a bit bedraggled, the sound is not so good and the picture is blotchy, but it's still good to see.
