"To be straightforward, I was going to rate this DVD a 3 until I heard Red Skelton's concluding remarks before his audience at the United Nations. That caused me to realize his heart was in the right place. In essence he said if he'd offended anyone it wasn't his intent, that he thought that everyone was put here for a purpose and his was to make people laugh.
The first two of these episodes are from his regular CBS television show, with the third being a special UN appearance. In "Freddie and the Spies" Red is the target of a manipulation plot by an attractive blonde spy. He is the hero and I won't spoil the ending by giving you the details.
In the second episode, Vincent Price is a "Hollywood" type antagonist who confronts Cauliflower, played by Red. The plot unfolds in a boxing ring. Again, I'll refrain from giving details.
The UN show is largely pantomine routines. There's a French narration to accompany the English version. My reason for originally thinking it only deserved a 3 rating was that some of the skits didn't seem to be as funny as I thought they'd be. Perhaps it was me. Maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind and need to loosen up."
