  • Cast: Ole Olsen, Chic Johnson, Martha Raye

Manic musical comedy based on a notoriously anarchic Broadway show; a rom-com plot was grafted on to make the movie more palatable, but the fourth wall is still in pieces (at one point, comedians Olsen and Johnson pick a fight with the projectionist) and its combination of insane comedy and medium awareness went on to inspire the Goons and, through them, Monty Python.
