When their car runs out of gas on a dark and stormy night, Biffle and Shooster make their way to the "kestle" of mad scientist Dr. Finklestein, who's about to create a new bride--for himself. Despite being aided by a hunchbacked assistant and a gorilla, he still needs someone to help complete the experiment. And guess who that someone is.Written by
Do you remember the comedy short subjects that used to be part of every movie show, or are you not old enough to remember when people put salt on everything, including grapefruit? Nick Santa Maria and Will Ryan have invented two ex-Vaudevillians, Biffle and Shooster, who starred in many of them, creatures of puns, set phrases an Three-Stooges-like eyepokes and Michael Schlesinger, who I've run out of funny things to say about, has written, directed and generally cajoled a lot of professionals who you would expect would have better things to do with their time into helping out with a series of shorts that recreate the lost children of Hollywood's Not-So-Golden Years.
In this one, they spoof the Universal horror movies of the 1930s. Like the other Biffle & Schooster shorts, the actors play 1930s actors; here the impersonated include several well known comedians of the era whom you likely have never heard of, and Academy-Award-winning makeup man Chris Walas in an acting role --- inside a gorilla suit. Some people either need the work or have a weird sense of humor.
