Product Description

Edgar Kennedy (1890-1948) was one of the funniest movie comedians of his era and the master of "the slow burn": playing characters who struggle to keep their composure up to, including and beyond the boiling point - but then all yell breaks loose!

Bald and stocky, the former boxer honed the comedy of exasperation in silent days, opposite such greats as Laurel & Hardy and Charley Chase. In the sound era, he made scores of RKO shorts playing an "Average Man" for whom marriage is a three-ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring and suffering. Between 1931 and 1948 he acted in 100-plus RKO shorts in which he fought losing battles with his wife, in-laws, neighbors, landlords, cops and more.

In addition to the nine RKO shorts featured in this compilation, there is an unusual oddity: "The Other Fellow," a Chevrolet-General Motors driver safety short with Edgar as a motorist exploding with road rage at the carelessness of other drivers - all of them also played by Kennedy!

  • The Other Fellow (1937)
  • Ears Of Experience (1938)
  • Clock Wise (1939)
  • Sunk By The Census (1940)
  • A Quiet Fourth (1941)
  • Hot Foot (1943)
  • It's Your Move (1945)
  • You Drive Me Crazy (1945)
  • Motor Maniacs (1946)
  • Trouble Or Nothing (1946)

I rarely endorse Alpha Video products, but when it comes to Edgar Kennedy there is no alternative.

Alpha has now reduced themselves to producing burned DVD-Rs instead of pressed DVDs. That said, lets talk about the amateurish transfers. For the most part these are good condition 16mm films telecine'ed on someone's home film transfer system, not professional film transfers. Some shorts have a slight greenish tint, others have a purple tint, one has tints that switch back & forth in the middle of a scene. All films appear to have been transferred to 3/4" video tape and that old tape was used to author this DVD.

One short, "A QUITE FORTH" inserts VHS tape footage for missing scenes in their 3/4" tape master. The trouble is that they missed a missing scene and there is an abrupt jump from Edgar milking a cow to Edgar running up to a picnic table chasing his brother-in-law. We never know why he chased him.

Two other shorts "CLOCK WISE" & "IT'S YOUR MOVE" were transferred out of frame, see the notes below for details.

The audio could have used some cleaning up, the first short "EARS OF EXPERIENCE" has a lot of hiss & hum in the background, and when everyone is talking the level goes down. It seems that this film was transferred using an amateur audio limiter to try to keep steady audio levels, but this only brings up the noise and reduces the dialogue.

The rare shorts in this collection are not available on any VCI discs.
