Written by Carl Reiner, The Comic was actually an unfunny story of Billy Bright, a silent screen comedian who's career was over when talkies arrived, but would later have a comeback in television commercials. Yet it's entertaining and intriguing, with a great cast that included Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, Michele Lee and Carl Reiner himself. The film also reflects the real lives and careers of comedians Harry Langdon, Buster Keaton and Stan Laurel. Also featured in this film is Isabel Sanford, Cornell Wilde, Steve Allen and Jerome Cowan.
