Double Whoopee (1929)


One of the lost films of Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy, 1929's Double Whoopee features a young, nearly-naked, Jean Harlow who gets caught up in the hijinks that surround this classic comedy duo yukking it up as a couple of bellhops. Ah, there's nothing better than pre-code Hollywood, before it was sanitized for our collective protection. I must make mention that from here on, I'm only going to smoke cigarettes like the Prince of Persia. Now, hold our your hands so I can ash in them, you trash can you.

Watch the entire short film below - it's pretty standard Laurel & Hardy fare. I mean what else do you have to do for the next 20 minutes besides be entertained and educated about a little piece of America's illustrious silent film history? Well now you have to watch it or you're just an uncultured schlub. Enjoy.

Andy Hardy's Private Secretary (1941)

Obviously Andy Hardy is living in the quaint 20th century - in this 1941 movie he hires a secretary since he's finally graduating from high school. Forget a college, getting a secretary is what ALL high school graduates are concerned with! Well, I suppose if your secretary was Kathryn Grayson singing her heart out, and you're the biggest star in Hollywood like Mickey Rooney, one could do worse. This light-hearted fare is illuminated on these lobby cards featuring Andy in a variety of scenes from the picture. Movie also features Ann Rutheford, Fay Holden and Lewis Stone as his parents and long-suffering girlfriend.

On the Town (1949)

New York, New York, a helluva town, The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down.
The people ride in a hole in the groun'. New York, New York, it's a helluva town!!

I've always loved this MGM-mega-musical-movie, it reminds me of high school band where we played this song about a thousand times marching up and down the back parking lot. It was years later when I finally saw the movie - and could put the music in it's original Coney Island context. This cute movie about boys on a night of shore leave looking for the "Turnstile of the Month" girl is as madcap as Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra could be in 1949. Here are two lobby cards from the movie - the second one featuring a still with all the lovely ladies (except Vera Ellen) as they're gearing up for their night on the town. Lots of singing and dancing will break out as soon as Ann Miller finishes talking I'm sure....
