The '2016 Was Just Awful and 2017 Looks Like It Will Be Even Worse, I Need A Laugh' Comedy Marathon

Something to start off 2017 to help try and distract me from all the utter shittiness. One film a year from 1930-1999 (so far).

Update 29th January: Dear god, the title of this marathon turns out to be even more prophetic that I could have imagined.

Update the second 13th June: A chink of light, maybe the tide is turning, here in the UK Chairman May has fucked up the election and Corbyn is on the rise. The French have halted the advance of their Nazis and in America President Clowny McFuckface's administration may now be in retreat. Perhaps there is hope for us all yet. Resist.
