Movie Reviews

A curiosity more than anything
nigellegin | Chicago | 01/06/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a budget title as immediately evidenced by the fact that the case is made from brittle, Grade Z plastic, but you still get a lot all things considered. The DVD contains the film Swing Parade of 1946 as well as the live-action pilot Jerks of All Trades. Swing Parade is a feature-length musical with a weak plot and lackluster songs. The Stooges have a guest role, and are as good as ever, though. Jerks of All Trades is a bit of a rarity, and as such a good addition to any Stooge fan's collection. Its interesting to see them perform live with a few little errors and the audience's laughter but it really isnt terribly funny. The DVD is produced by Good Times DVD and for some baffling reason, they plastered their logo in the lower right hand corner of every frame like you see on tv shows. Its transparent, but still annoying. The picture and sound quality are fine, but Good Times obviously did little or no restoration or repair so I dont know why they think they deserve so much credit for the works contained on the DVD. As expected, theres nothing in the way of extras and its in full frame mode only. Overall, you get a lot for budget title, but I would have like a more professionally done version of Jerks of All Trades minus the logos."
A Lost Gem

"Okay, so most Stooge fans favor the Moe, Larry & Curly version of the trio, and Shemp is featured in this live act. This Lost Classic was unearthed by Milton Berle's brother (who also gives an interview) and was actually a pilot for a series of live shows that were planned. (The Stooges were going to have a different occupation each week.) Once you immerse yourself in "Jerks of All Trades" you forget that you are watching a live performance. There are some very funny moments and the boys come through with flying colors. A must for every Stooge Collector!"
