Funny Tidbits for June


Allow me take care of some miscellaneous business today.

Here is a Charley Chase performing the "trying on hats" routine in At First Sight (1924).

 
 

This is Buster Keaton performing an early version of his "unconscious woman" routine in The Navigator (1924).

A folding bed gets the best of Jerry Lewis in You're Never Too Young (1955).

  
Charlie Chaplin is still running afoul of his old nemesis, the dress dummy, in Monsieur Verdoux (1952).

 

Here are three brats from The Band Wagon (1953).

  
The Three Stooges perform the three-man human pyramid gag in Healthy, Wealthy and Dumb (1938).

I have written much about Karno's "Mumming Birds" sketch in the past.  I just recently learned Max Linder starred in an unauthorized film adaptation of "Mumming Birds" in 1907.  The film was called Au music-hall, which translates as At the Music Hall.
 
These stock comedy bits are further proof to me that comedians never tire of a good routine.


 
One last silly clip
