Trivia

While Porky Pig looks over characters and judges their talents, an unnamed wolf wants to be first, But Porky Pig's rules are strict and he tells the wolf to wait for when his time comes. When the unnamed wolf's time occurs, he commits suicide, and Porky Pig gives him first place. A similar suicidal scene is featured in the closing scene of Show Biz Bugs (1957), but this time by Daffy Duck. See more »

it'll never be curtains for this cartoon
15 August 2006 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

As an adult watching the Looney Tunes cartoons, I'm always amazed at some of the spoofs and references thrown in that I didn't recognize when I was three and four. I get the feeling that the people behind the cartoons probably used some of their own experiences as inspiration (let's face it: there's lots to spoof in Hollywood). So, "Curtain Razor" features Porky Pig as a talent agent auditioning various and sundry misfits to see whether or not he can find spots for them. Now that I think about it, the final scene was sort of a strange thing to show in something intended for children.

OK, so I admit that I don't know whether or not this cartoon was based on a real experience. But either way, it's great to watch, hearing Porky grouchily stutter comments about the hokey acts that he has to watch. You're sure to like it.

"I can only do it once". Well, you can watch this cartoon many times and still like it.
