film 10 of 11

Vim, Vigor and Vitaliky

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 16, 2015

Another most admirable title. That is one fat lady! Bluto’s female impersonation is wonderfully grotesque, or maybe he is, made over into a woman, wonderfully and horribly ugly. The brief effeminate mincing puts one in mind of Chaplin’s Behind the Screen, from his Mutual days. This is of its time, and so it has interest, and signifies. But it’s problematic in a number of ways.
