BRIDGE WIVES (1932)

  • Frantic one-reeler from 1932 with Al St John and directed by Fatty Arbuckle. Look for Stooge supporting player Lynton Brent.

  • I may have posted this one ages ago, but it's worth a double post and it is indeed one of my all-time favorite shorts by anybody.  Everybody should watch this one, and it's been so long for me I'll watch it again tonight.

  • Thank God he didn't unplug the radio, burying it is much funnier.

    Al St. John is a comic genius for this one short alone.  3:35!

  • It has a lot going for it. One wishes St. John made more sound-era shorts and that more of Arbuckle's sound-era credits were available.

    Yes, I believe this was posted before. I recall also posting several quotes from reviews and from the Educational Press Material for the short.

    Thanks!  Really need to check out Alpha's comedy collection because I have tons of old Bela Lugosi and other assorted black and white horrors from them.  Those oldies.com catalogs are always fun to look at.

  • The video quality of Alpha material isn't always great, but their stuff is cheap enough that it doesn't matter. They have released a lot of stuff that wouldn't sniff a release otherwise.
