Wash your mouth out with soap!

This is found on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of The Maltese Falcon, even though it, as far as I can tell, doesn't contain anything from that particular film. It is a 13-minute blooper reel, apparently all of them from movies from 1941. I can't claim to have watched... well, any of the ones they show clips from. This opens and closes with the familiar(or a version of it at least) theme from the animated shorts also produced in this period(Looney Tunes?). I don't know what that nasty egg thing that shows up three times in this is about. I'd say about half of the outtakes are funny(a couple of them are simply strange, or maybe you need to have seen the picture they're from to understand), and it's somehow pleasant to see that it looked about the same when they messed up their lines or something happened with a prop 60 years ago as it does today. There are numerous big names from back then in this, so if you've watched anything famous from back then that hit the silver screen, was American and live-action, you'll most likely recognize at least some of them. A lot of the time, they swear moderately when a take is botched. That is the only offensive thing in this. I recommend this to anyone who likes to watch stuff like this. 8/10
