Hal Roach Studio Features - Tomorrow!


Recommended Posts

Three Features from the Hal Roach Studios are airing in succession tomorrow.

 

I don't know if they are premieres but it's interesting to note that the deal with Hallmark is presenting some rarely seen films on TCM.

 

The Devil with Hitler (1942)

Broadway Limited (1941)

Niagara Falls (1941)

THE DEVIL WITH HITLER is a wonderfully bizarre streamliner - certainly the most offbeat entry in this offbeat format series. Bobby Watson ("Moses supposes his toeses are roses...") plays der fooey and it's 100% burlesque. Joe Devlin is a drugstore Mussolini and George E. "the Runt" Stone plays Suki Yaki. This obnoxious axis makes hay with Hades (and Alan Mowbray as the Devil). Roach produced these 4 reel "streamliners" as program filler. Two of the very best to look out for are PRAIRIE CHICKENS and ALL-AMERICAN CO-ED. THE DEVIL WITH HITLER was followed up the next year by NAZTY NUISANCE.
