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:

Not my cup of tea. Too much screaming and fainting, not enough laughs.
