Quote of the Week

"If by chance some day you're not feeling well and you should remember some silly thing I've said or done and it brings back a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my purpose as your clown has been fulfilled." - comedian Red Skelton

If redoubtable Red's never made you chuckle, it's probably that you've never seen him in action; check out this clip from 1949's Neptune's Darling, in which he bumblingly plays paramour to overly amorous Betty Garrett with the help of identity theft, a Spanish-language record and a head injury.

Neptune's Darling is available on remastered DVD as part of The Esther Williams Collection Volume 1.
