"Oh, You Nasty Man."





Meade sent me that after YouTube recommended it to him for whatever reason. The only clue he gave me was that he went to the video "Wilhelmina" recommended by the commenter dreams, here. And that had to do with a commenter named Wilhelmina who seems to be aggravating Meade and dreams. I don't know, but those 2 short clips — from 1934 — are very funny. Meade was watching over my shoulder and comparing the men to Trump.

There are 2 different clips. Watch them both!

I originally screwed up the coding, so if they looked the same, check it out now.

They do look the same, but because they were both there I watched them both, the second even had more to it. Both were saucily funny.

Thanks, I always appreciate someone's giving me a good laugh.

And maybe you'll laugh at this. The rest of the post was offscreen below, and I had just read John Nolte's review over at the Daily Wire. So, for some reason, I thought this was Althouse doing a post on the Dakota Johnson grey sequel, and these clips about nasty men were, oh, a tie in. But they were not. And in fact they were quite the opposite.

Leaves me with a smile and a twinkle in my eye.

"Oh, you naaaaasty man!" was a catchphrase of comic Joe Penner.

And "You wanna' buy a duck?"

Don't miss the segment with the very young and adorable Alice Faye.

Isn't Wilhelmina just another Inga clone? Seems obvious to me.

I had it coded wrong. They should start in different places now. The second one is particularly good when the tiny woman dances on the champagne glass.

Both links look the same to me. Both had the two fantasy sequences (including the woman dancing on the glass).

Just checked the source of this, "George White's Scandals" (1934). It's a movie just before the Hayes Office stopped the risque stuff, which explains, well, everything.

Is it unkind to say that none of these people had any Talent? The acting was all terrible the dancing was lame the music sucked the singer was I suppose Pleasant enough but what was wrong with her eyes? A scene like that would be so much better crafted today even if it had no more artistic content value.

I dunno; the sailor in the first clip was a bit "grabby". Was that the resemblance to the Trumpster?

Wilhelmina said...

So, OK I watched the videos, you nasty men. Good thing he only grabbed her hips and not her pussy. Loved the Wilhelmina song, fits me to a tee, just a sweet little girl from Copenhagen.

Alice Faye looks sorta like Althouse when she sings "Oh you nasty man" at the beginning of the long production number. That's why Meade sent it to her.

"Good thing he only grabbed her hips and not her pussy."

Intermediate step. Then she cut him off (metaphorically.)
