Slapstick Blog-a-Thon Day 3

Today is Day 3 of the Slapstick Blog-a-Thon.

We watched another Laurel and Hardy -The Lucky Dog, a short film and the first time the two appeared together.

We also watched Abbot and Costello's Africa Screams. We have the b/w version on DVD, and it can be seen in b/w here or colorized here. Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein is a staple of our annual October Monster Movie Month, but I've never been much of a fan otherwise. Except, of course, for Who's On First.

Later we watched The Ritz Brothers in The Gorilla, which we have on DVD and which can be seen online here. Not my cup of tea. Too much screaming and fainting, not enough laughs.
