I have a post up at l'autre blog in which I try to explain why today's sitcoms suck: it's all about relationships.
And here are a few random clips to pass the weekend:
More Beyond the Fringe: Peter Cook and Alan Bennett in "The Great Train Robbery":
One of the most tasteless and frankly bizarre scenes in the often tasteless and bizarre career of Frank Tashlin: Dean Martin basically tries to rape Pat Crowley in Hollywood or Bust. I'm still not sure what the hell Tashlin was thinking here.
And another one of those semi-improvised Leo McCarey scenes that are so dear to my heart: Ralph Bellamy (who can't sing) and Irene Dunne (who can) in "Home on the Range" in The Awful Truth.
