Best Picture Ever!
24 December 2020 | by vilenciaproductionsSee all my reviews

I was fortunate to snag a beautiful 16mm reduction print of this hilarious little picture, "Stork Bites Man" I love everything about this little comedy gem! Meg Randall was a good looking babe! But only 19 screen and television credits to her name? Emory Parnell was one of the best character actors in the golden days of Hollywood and later television with over 300 screen credits! Gus Schilling was so funny in this picture when he imitates the babies crying! Everybody was excellent! And of course Jackie Cooper! Love him! "Hennesey" was a wonderful TV series that needs to be seen again! "The People's Choice" and Our Gang Comedies that we all grew up watching here in Los Angeles on channel 52! Comet Productions made only four pictures! I wonder what happened to the 35mm cut nitrate negatives? At 67 minutes it's a joy to behold! As December 2020 draws to a close, and the world, America and Los Angeles County is in such a huge mess, it was so fun to project this picture last night on the big screen! And forget about Covid-19, and all of the horrible things in the world now, such as, Rap, Rock & Country music, cell phones, computers, tattooed idiots running around, women with colored hair, dangerous drivers who run red lights and stop signs galore! Other nasty things like Mr. Trump and Mr. Biden, The Republicans and The Democrats, or should I say the traders who won't even give Americans a lousy $600 bucks! B_ _ _ _h McConnell and Hatchet face w_ _ _e Pelosi! Yes America sucks now! Ain't gonna get better! So pull out the 16mm sound motion picture machine and run a good old picture from the 1940's! See you in Covid-2021!
