Despite the salacious title, "Famous Boners" is not a porno film. Instead, it's a short that talks about three very dissimilar cases which all have a common thread...mistakes. The first involves Thomas Carlyle's book about the French Revolution, the second a dopey prisoner who escaped and was soon recaptured and the third involved a spy ring in the US during WWI.
None of these famous mistakes were earthshattering but they all were mildly interesting. Not a great short but a decent time-passer if it comes on before or after something you really wanted to see on TCM.
