Those merry madcaps of mayhem, Biffle & Shooster, in the movie that sets comedy back 75 years--to when it was, y'know, actually funny. The less-than-legendary vaudeville team made 20 comedy shorts between 1933 and 1938; this was their final one. The boys get jobs in an art gallery on the very day that a priceless painting is delivered. You can pretty much imagine how this will play out. Shot in glorious B&W and 1.33:1, IT'S A FRAME-UP! is an authentic-as-possible recreation of the glory days of Hollywood comedy teams, replete with snappy dialogue, grievous puns, plenty of slapstick and even impressions--plus a plot twist or two. Yes, boys and girls, they CAN make 'em like they used to...and we're just the idiots to do it! Written by

Forget it. You can't even count that high.
