Great Moments In Comic Timing (Special Memorial Day Edition)

on May 25, 2009 by Steve Simels

Well, it's a lazy holiday Monday, and so what better time to enjoy the great Myrna Loy responding to the great William Powell with one of the most perfect takes in the history of American film. From the uniformly hilarious 1937 screwball farce Double Wedding.

But first -- Steve's Movie Reviews©!!!


Anvil: The Story of Anvil -- The real life Spinal Tap, but unexpectedly funny and touching. You'll care about the two 50-something nice Jewish boys at the heart of it even if you don't give a rats ass about heavy metal.



Angels and Demons -- With the exception of the scene of Tom Hanks in a Harvard swimming pool, this shares not a single plot point with the Dan Brown bestseller of the same name, but that's probably a good thing. Also: Any movie that pisses off William Donohue is, by definition, worth seeing.


But I digress.

In any case, here's Bill and Myrna.

3 seconds of sheer unadulterated comic genius.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday, everybody!
