I watched mine once years ago, I'll put my copy in again and let you know what happens. This does sound crazy. Coincidentally enough, Abbott and Costello and Laurel and Hardy had similar double feature DVDs released at the same time from the same company. I have the former and not the latter (the two Laurel and Hardy films I burned off TCM years ago and am in no rush to buy since they're not exactly Stan and Ollie's best). If anybody has those other two sets, any issues there to report?
Correct. I hope you guys are reading these Emil Sitka entries I'm posting on these shorts, because there's some really good stuff in them, including his relationship with the boys, his idea on roles, and yes, the condoms that are used in this short as bubbles. The final shot of Shemp having the bubbles/condoms protruding out of his ear took on a whole new meaning for me last night now that I know the truth.
Also, ever notice how wimpy Christine's bubble shots were compared to the others? It was probably a chore to get her to do even that because according to Emil, she was not too happy about having to blow condom bubbles. As somebody who had strict Catholic grandparents roughly ten years younger than Christine, I know that generation of Catholics especially were not fans of birth control. From what I've read, Christine was also a very devout Catholic, so my guess is that's where she's coming from on this issue. Even used as a mere prop, trust me, my grandparents would have flipped.
The Derita features, no matter what one may think of their quality, have something new to offer and will be interesting to discuss. HAVE ROCKET, WILL TRAVEL will follow SAPPPY BULLFIGHTERS.
We will never do STOP, LOOK, and LAUGH; or at least I won't. The film's a waste of time to me, but if somebody wants to start a thread on it in the general discussion thread, knock yourself out. It will probably get more views and comments than BIG BUSINESS.
Whoops! I just went back and took a quick look, and I now see that by the time they get to the party, Curly has ditched the light-colored suit and they're all wearing tuxes. I didn't realize that! They're also wearing tuxes in IN THE SWEET PIE AND PIE, so some vintage pie-fight footage definitely COULD have been inserted.
Months later, doing it from memory just because I can:
One-zell two-zell three-zell zam
The buck-tail vinegar tickle and tam
Sick Sam the butcher man
See saw-buck out!
