Buffoon Of Joy
Bob Woolsey's only solo feature may be a cheap Poppy knockoff, but at least Al Boasberg was trying to deliver a vehicle properly suited to Bob Woolsey's talents. The same can't be said for Bert Wheeler's contemporary Too Many Cooks, a patience-straining timewaster which features no songs, no dancing, no action, and Roscoe Ates as comic relief. It's altogether odd considering that RKO was banking on Bert, not Bob, as the big solo success. Here are some fun newspaper ads from July 25-August 18, 1931.
