Funny as all get-out!!!
17 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

As far as B-movies go, this film is a comedy gold mine!

Maxie Rosenbloom and Max Baer were real-life best friends from their days as boxers up until Baer passed in the late 1950's. These two sparkle as protagonist verses antagonist; this film was meant to have all of the guffaws play out on screen as they do. It's just .. in a word... darling!

For anyone who wishes to get a copy, there is a DVD out that can be purchased by a company that sells on Amazon. Also, you can view clips on Youtube as well as on our Slapsie Maxie Facebook fan page (type "Slapsie Maxie" in the search bar). Go to 'Photos > Videos', and you'll see clips and anything Maxie Rosenbloom.

Maxie made everyone laugh. And as Dick Van Patten said to me, "He just thought funny". You can view that story in our interview we posted on FB.

If anyone reading this knew Maxie, please do contact me (Gail) via Facebook. Thank you!
