I think they all have two things in common, they were great, unique comedians and they seem to be a bit negelcted.
What do I like about their films? They’re good fun…usually pretty harmless, they make me laugh/smirk and the “good guy” always wins. There are no tits, no swearing and if there are any special effects then they usually involve lots of rope or a really dodgy backdrop.
Here’s a funky link, it’s Danny Kaye in the Inspector General – http://www.archive.org/details/the_inspector_general
Now all I’ve got to do is find some George Formby, Will Hay, W.C.Fields, Warner Oland…
Danny Kaye – A Song is Born
George Fomby – Let George Do It!
Will Hay – The Goose Steps Out
