IDLE ROOMERS (1931) Molino Brothers

Postby Richard M Roberts » Thu Mar 07, 2024 12:30 am

Another Educational Cameo Comedy missing a minute or so from it's LOC print (I've got a complete one we showed at Slapsticon in 2013). Directed by Roscoe Arbuckle and released November 29, 1931, it features the Molino Brothers (Frank and Alfred), Fern Emmett (oddly billed as the star in the redone Atlas Television titles), George Davis, Henry Roquemore, Lynton Brent, William McCall and Al Thompson.

The Molinos are acrobats in the Mitchell and Durant mode (only slightly funnier), but it gets more interesting when George Davis and partner do a bit of tumbling on their own and we get to see some of Davis's old Circus prowess:
