CAN YOU DIG IT?
Summer is drawing to a close... time for summer vacations to end and folks like me to shovel out from under the flotsam and jetsam and get back to work! On the docket: another silent Our Gang (Little Rascals) short, more Columbia shorts (including the Stooges of course), the previously promised "Arsenic & Old Lace" and Don Knotts. And maybe, just maybe a whole Christmas week of those smiling pick-axers above, Laurel & Hardy.
In the meantime, speaking of picks and shovels, here's a treat for fans of that other daffy duo, Abbott & Costello. Here's Passaic, New Jersey's own favorite son, director Joe Dante ("Gremlins," "Matinee") giving you his take on Paterson, New Jersey's own favorite son Lou Costello and Asbury Park, New Jersey's own favorite son Bud Abbott in "Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy."
