This 1953 short is an absolutely outstanding satire of early television and the chaos it brought to households and neighborhoods.
That’s a first rate late film cameo!
This was also at the end of the golden era of film shorts. They are really a lost art. How many great comedic ideas are perfect for a 10 minute short? Of course the rise of the diversity of television–and now of course the internet–has provided any number of new forms for this sort of comedy.
As for me, I’m enjoying watching this with a nice big glass of Hockensplitz beer.
