Did they ever think of a title?
If not, should we be worrying now?share
The title was most likely the least of their problem with this movie.share
I saw this yesterday on TV. I stopped and watched it because I was a big fan of the Dick Van Dyke Show and all the guest spots were interesting. I didn't think it was that bad, not the best by any means, but better than some films I've seen from that era.share
What channel did you see this on? I'd love to watch it, and I keep hoping to run across it on DVD or VHS, but as far as I can tell it's never been released.
Some great talents were involved in this (Morey Amsterdam, Rose Marie, Steve Allen, Milton Berle), and though it looks like it was the last gasp of the vaudeville era, it would still be interesting as a relic.
Watching it now on the THIS channel. Soooo amateurish in cinimatography but fun watching the dick van dykers again while munching on pizza.share
Saw the last half hour on WOCH and it was brutal.
Here is a link that shows when it will air:
Trust me: The first hour wasn't any better.share
I remember as a kid seeing Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie on talk shows like Mike Douglas enthusiastically plugging this movie. Since I was a big Van Dyke Show fan so I waited, and waited for it to be released. The only problem was it never came out. I don't think it ever did get a release and after finally seeing it on TCM a few years ago I knew why. Not as bad as Jack E. Leonard & Phyllis Diller in "The Fat Spy," but close.share
I grew up watching Mike Douglas, but this film was a bit before my time. Does it have a plot, or is it just a collection of vaudeville gags? It sounds like it was the last dying gasp of that era of comics – very out of place in the mid-'60s.
I did see "The Fat Spy," and it's horrible – and not is a "so bad it's good" sense. Just miserably bad.
They should've thought of a story line and a script that wasn't formerly used to line a bird cage instead. This schlockfest makes the typical Monkees episode look like Shakespeare.share
Watching this now on a network called "The Works", an afilliate of WMFP TV Lawrence, MA, and caught the scene with Moe Howard as the lawyer who tells Magda of her inheritance, and growing up watching The Three Stooges, I've never seen him in anything else but the Stooges.share
