More Examples of The Carrying an Unconscious Woman Routine 

I doubt I have written about any routine more than this one.  The examples presented in this article are just the tip of a very large iceberg.  So, what makes the routine so popular?  We could dig around these scenes to root out a great social and psychological meaning regarding the stress and strain that sometimes exists between men and women.  But, for now, let's just say that the routine has a simple premise that allows a comedian to showcase his physicality.

La paura degli aeromobili nemici (1915, Itala Film)

The Waiter's Ball (1916)

Jitterbugs (1943)

The Very Thought of You (1944)

Leon Errol and Joan Davis in Lady Gets Her Man (1945) 

James Stewart, Joan Fontaine and Eddie Albert in You Gotta Stay Happy (1948)
