"If It's a Good Picture, It's a Miracle"
6 August 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Warner Brothers used to sweep up the more amusing examples of Great Actors blowing a take in their Great Pictures -- usually accompanied by some profane language -- attach some titles and show them at the Christmas parties. By 1938 this was a yearly tradition, called "Breakdowns" and stitched together by a clip of Porky Pig hitting a thumb with a hammer and stuttering "Son of a b-".

In this 1935 version, we get to see Jimmy Cagney and Warren Williams blowing a lot of takes, as well as Busby Berkley complaining about the Ostrich That Got Away. The titles include a number of suggestions for musical cues to "Leo", presumably Leo Forbstein, the conductor of the house orchestra. Very funny.
