Hellzapoppin'

This 1941 film is a madcap recreation of the popular variety act stage play. Comedians Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson play a couple of Vaudeville funnymen trying to make a movie. There are some would-be lovers, a fake Russian count, a detective, synchronized swimming and a Frankenstein monster! It's heavily sanitized from the original stage version, but it gives you a fairly good idea of what Vaudeville looked like back in the day. Double-featured with Vaudeville on Film. 84 minutes
