I stumbled upon this 1939 video the other day... hope it brings you a few laughs, as it did for me!

It begins with clown-faced Joe Termini doing his vaudeville shtick with violin before moving on to featuring him on banjo... he's good, too!

Not bad.

My personal favorite is Gene Sheldon, who was such a successful MIME, that he ended up playing Bernardo, the mute servant on Disney's ZORRO tv show.

Somebody in Milwaukee had the idea of putting on a show with all the old Vaudeville acts who weren't DEAD yet, and Gene Sheldon did his bit, only SOME of which is captured on this bit of film, and I literally laughed so hard that my face hurt.

Here ya go:
