Movies Everyone Should See

Recommended Posts

I noticed this movie was on the TV schedule for this morning.  If you are younger and never heard of this movie, it's a must see.  Basically every comic in Hollywood decided it would be fun to get together and make a movie.  It start with Jimmy Durante literally kicking a bucket as he dies on the side of a mountain and keeps going.  Ethel Merman is an absolute hoot.

Ethel Merman at the end in the hospital ward was unforgettable.

Definitely a classic that needs to be seen.  I haven't watched this in ages - probably need to try and find it again.

True - I'm sure all the versions I saw on television decades ago were the 'edited' version.
