3:00 Red Skelton Movie “I Dood It”
Lovely, talented, famous — stage star Constance Shaw is everything pants presser Joe Reynolds can’t have. Then one day, Constance decides to get back at her two-timing beau by marrying Joe. The film’s title comes from a Red Skelton catchphrase, the storyline comes from Buster Keaton’s Spite Marriage and the fun comes from everywhere in this pratfalling musicomedy directed by Vincente Minnelli. Eleanor Powell dances. Lena Horne sings. Jimmy Dorsey swings. Hazel Scott sears the ivories. And Red (as Joe) doods the rest with routines that include his hilarious attempt to put his blotto honeymoon bride to bed and, in a nod to the era, with heroics that pit him against Nazi saboteurs. They’re gonna get a whippin’! (Warner Archives)
