Do you remember the comedy short subjects that used to be part of every movie show, or are you not old enough to use a walker to go to a theater? Nick Santa Maria and Will Ryan have invented two ex-Vaudevillians, Biffle and Shooster, who starred in many of them, creatures of puns, set phrases an Three-Stooges-like eyepokes and Michael Schlesinger, who keeps removing his biography from the IMDb because he has no life, has written, directed and generally cajoled a lot of professionals who you would expect would have better things to do with their time into helping out with a series of shorts that recreate the lost children of Hollywood's Not-So-Golden Years.
In this one, the boys are running a typical "cheater" of the era: a brief variety show in which they do a few classic comedy routines, interspersed with musical acts, singing several songs from the Great American songbook. Fans of classic shorts will appreciate the fact that it is shot in color, and then color-corrected to look like Cinecolor, one of the cheaper color processes of the era
