Vintage ghost comedy sketch

Arsenic and Old Lace. A screwball comedy featuring murderous old ladies, a Frankensteinish villain, a creepy dark house and a hilarious Cary Grant at his physical comedy best...all set against the back drop of Halloween 1944. What's not to love?

The Three Stooges - Please, please don't make a Stooges movie. And, please don't sell out and offer us a "Curly Joe." Shemp is incredibly funny and was the original 3rd stooge, but, not until the addition of Curly did these three legends capture a little boy's funny bone. Holy crap, they were funny to me when I was a kid (and sometimes they still are now that I'm an old sourpuss). I add all three as pawns to my chess board of comedy favorites.

The Three Stooges Movie > Moe, Larry and Curly

Red Skelton- kind of cheesy, but great old comedy

Everyone should see the old Marx Brothers films. Just good comedy

George Burns and Gracie Allen were a great comedy team. They show the old episodes sometimes and I love how she ends up collecting visitors hats.

The Keystone Kops in a typical pose in The Gangsters (1913). The desk officer using the telephone is Ford Sterling. The policeman directly behind Sterling (in extreme background, left) is Edgar Kennedy. The hefty policeman at extreme right is Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. The young constable with bulging eyes, fourth from right, is Arbuckle's nephew Al St. John. The casting of the Keystone police force changed from one film to the next; many of the individual members were per diem actors who remain unidentifiable.
