Lothario & chemistry....
17 June 2019 | by simeon_flakeSee all my reviews

Shemp and a moment of Jules White, with Zion Myers waiting for more obvious comparisons of the Columbia B-Ranch, incredible leftovers & how incredibly comfortable this old discussion still is for a geek like me--not casting any lame comebacks, obviously against anyone else who enjoys the old comfort.

Apparently this stuff this has enough chemistry and sparkle to challenge Bud, Lou, Chico and any other dead comedian I can think of (all except the Besser fan-club).

The nuisance is, I know Ms. McIntyre and Shemp always make it enough, so I'll just say I enjoy the 7/10 split....
