This is prime A good comedy especially the self-deprecating, yet ego filled award show speeches.

    Wild surreal Fatty Arbuckle comedy short with sound. Fatty develops a liquid that, when applied will make glass and chinaware unbreakable and just bounce when dropped. (Maybe this was later seen by Disney and sparked the idea of Flubber) He plans to sell it in the big city to a China shop, but it gets mixed up with a jar of his friend's moonshine. There are a lot of great sight gags, bee hives put in place of footballs, and strange inventions including a bath tub sidecar motorcycle. Havoc reigns in the conclusion, as expected. This was a good time.

The constant effect of the plane turning and rolling and just being upside down as Martha Raye does comedic mugging and Jimmie Walker plays his saxophone while smoking pot are hilarious. However, the sexist comments made by George "Hey, Honey, that's why…
