Movie Movie (1978) George C. Scott, Art Carney. Fabulous 1930s film spoof!
This movie is really, as George Burns informs you in the opening minutes, two movies in one. It's an absolutely hysterical riff on the double features of the 1930's, written by the great Larry Gelbart ("M.A.S.H." TV and many other credits) and Sheldon Leonard team and with an all-star cast lead by George C. Scott. The first movie is a take off on the sports drama genre popular in the '30s, "Dynamite Hands", about a good boy gone bad then good again as a heavyweight boxer Joey Popchik, who decides to go into the game to raise money to cure his sister's impending blindness. This stars Harry Hamlin with featured roles by Art Carney as the doctor, George C. as a big-time boxing coach "Gloves" (what else!) Molloy, Red Buttons as Joey's trainer "Peanuts", Michael Kidd as Joey's dad "Pop" Popchik, Kathleen Beller as Joey's poor little sister Angie, and Ann Reinking as the bad showgirl and mobster's gal "Troubles" Moran. You may ask yourself how this can tense-sounding drama be funny, well believe me, it's start-to-finish laughs ripping the genre from head to toe! The second "movie" is an wonderful spin on the big splashy 1930's musicals called "Baxter's Beauties" of 1933", starring Scott as the great showman "Spats" Baxter (think Florenz Siegfeld big!) who learns from doc Art Carney that his last test results showed he has 6 months to line...5 months ago!...and decides to put on his biggest show ever as his legacy. This one features Barry Bostwick as the boy songwriter turned male lead, Red Buttons in his by-now-familiar role as Spats' sidekick and stagehand, Barbara Harris as showgirl Trixie, and Trish Van De Vere as the primadonna female star who ends up drunk, allowing the seamstress showgirl-wannabe to go on and wowing the crowd as the new star. Oh, it turns out she's also...get ready for it...the daughter Spats never knew he had! This whole confection is choreographed by the great Michael Kidd.

This movie came out in 1978 was released very briefly on VHS and never resurfaced on commercial DVD

If you've never seen this laugh-fest, you must buy this DVD! It's the funniest thing to come out of the '70s since "Blazing Saddles"!

The region-free (playable worldwide)DVD comes to you in a slim DVD case with full artwork shown.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I burn these DVDs on an as-ordered basis, you may experience a shipping delay of a day or possibly two, but I try to avoid this if time permits!

International (outside U.S.)orders are always welcome, and I used to send these Priority Mail for an additional fee, however as postal rates at my end have skyrocketed of late making that option unaffordable I can only offer First Class "small packet" service, which frankly has its risks, the biggest of which is the lack of tracking available, so PLEASE BE SURE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PRIOR TO ORDERING in order to minimize the chance of non-delivery as these items are not returned to me if they cannot be delivered for any reason.

I accept personal or cashiers checks and money orders from U.S. buyers and PayPal from everyone in the whole wide world.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to message me with any questions.
