Hotel Anchovy and the Ritz

When I was in high school my interest in electronics led me to volunteer as an AV (audio/visual) helper. I would spend my study hall time in the A-V room and when a class anywhere in the school was scheduled to watch a film I would load the projector and the film onto a cart, take it to the room, set it up, thread the film through the projector just so, and show the film to the class, then take the equipment back the A-V room. The educational films that I showed a couple of times a week were so intriguing that . . . well . . . I cannot even remember one of them, they were that interesting . . . NOT. Back in the 1930s a film company was created with the goal of filming great educational stories that schools across the nation would eagerly purchase to show their students. The demand, or lack of demand, was so great that just before the company went bankrupt they decided to film comedy shorts that they could sell for some great money to the growing movie theater community. One of the comedy acts that they brought to motion picture audiences was a trio of brothers headlining on the Vaudeville circuit, Al Joachim, Jimmy Joachim and Harry Joachim, with brother George as their manager. One day Al saw the name 'Ritz' on the side of a company truck and decided on the spot that it would be a more memorable last name than Joachim, and the Ritz Brothers comedy team was born. In this comedy short the Ritz Brothers are hired by a young lady who owns a hotel that she is trying to sell, and the brothers create hilarious slapstick Vaudeville style antics on the way to closing the deal with a wealthy buyer. Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it and laugh your way through the show.
