    Wow, I never saw “Spy Smasher” before this. I’ve always liked the director, Billy Whitney, primarily for his Roy Rogers films. The fight scenes were like watching a ballet. His style has been imitated a lot.

    But THIS thing. Looks like Billy was ahead of his time. The dizzying quick edits are how movies are made today. Obviously, it’s meant, in this case, to look like more is going on than a bunch of bad costumes on an over-used sound stage.

    Thanks for posting it here. It was terrible, but it helps to
    make my life a little more complete.

    Over a century, I would think. I still think “grawlix” is far funnier than are the real words. A few years ago, I saw a copy of Mad and was saddend to see that they are going for speech reality. The humor just loses something.

    And what’s the liklihood that they could transfer them to the truck as perfectly balanced as the two brilliant scientists who loaded them on the cart?

    Nah…..Harry Mudd had very expressive eyes. Not empty sockets. Could be his “good twin,” I guess.
