Cruel and Unusual Comedy

MoMA's slapstick film series got off to a good start this Wednesday with some violent, cross-dressing slapstick comedies (Stan Laurel in a wedding dress, Wally Beery in an old-fashioned bathing costume) and I look forward to the rest of the series. There was a slight mishap when the wrong print of Good Night Nurse arrived, but you can catch the Fatty Arbuckle version on DVD, it's still funny even on tiny screens.
