I don’t know why this surprises me, but hey! They made blooper reels in the ’30s!
This contains a lot less cursing and convulsive giggling than contemporary gag reels do, but I don’t know if that’s a difference in the actors or in the editing of said reels.
I think my favorite is around 7:03 with Victor Jory flubbing his lines in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. What’s your favorite vintage flub, PopWatchers? [via]
