Recognizing Old Timers
27 January 2004 | by willramsSee all my reviews

Today was a boring cloudy day, and I just happened to see this gem on AMC TV. Three retired men convince their bank to finance a dream of theirs for a sports shop selling articles for adults. What a laugh riot it was for me to enjoy my old favorites Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Danny Thomas, and Morey Amsterdam. Even Marjorie Lord was in it. I had seen Berle and Caesar before but did not know they had made this film as one of their last. They have left us a fine film legacy. 6/10
