  1. You are using a photo from the 1941 Whistling in the Dark.
  2. Spy spoof and parodies were strong in the 60's. "In Like Flint" I guess would be a satire. The Dr. Goldfoot films had great slapstick. Woody Allen in "Casino Royale" which connects to Austin Powers movies.
  3. I think "What's Up Doc?" would have been a better choice than "Foul Play".
  4. I see more Hal Roach comedy in Woody Allen. Woody does have a character. He is a reluctant hero. Nervous but finds a way to make it. He uses "verbal slapstick". He enhance his comedy with jazzy music just like Hal Roach L&H films. Some of the physical comedy is based on being clumsy. The Great Race is more like Sennett because of the explosions, fast pace car gags and zany fights.
