  • One of the Funniest Films Ever Made.

    Its easy to judge comedy films.You don't need any critical faculties.You laugh or you don't.Laughter is contagious. Its easy to laugh when other people are laughing.People usually don't laugh out loud when they're by themselves.I watched Mexican Spitfire Out West (1940) on Turner Classic Movies all by myself .I laughed myself silly.I re-watched it again several times over the following month.Still laughed myself silly, even though I knew what was coming.The first half-hour is nothing special - basically just a set-up for the last 40 minutes, when everybody heads to Reno (Divorce Capital of the U.S.A.)I liked it so much I ordered the complete 8 film series (1939-43) on 4 DVDs from Amazon.The other seven films were good, but not up to the level of Mexican Spitfire Out West.The Mexican Spitfire series is a virtual prequel to I Love Lucy, with Lupe Velez a remarkable combination of both Lucy and Ricky.I now have a major crush on a woman who committed suicide in 1944.Can't help it.In the first film, The Girl from Mexico, Carmelita meets her future husband Dennis (stuffy), his Uncle Matt (nice) and Aunt Della (nasty).The second film, Mexican Spitfire, introduces Lord Epping (very British), played by Leon Errol, who also plays Uncle Matt.Lady Epping arrives in film three, Mexican Spitfire Out West.Films 2 through 8 have the same plot:Carmelita notices the strong resemblance of Uncle Matt to Lord Epping.She devises a wacky plan to have Uncle Matt impersonate Lord Epping.The real Lord Epping shows up unexpectedly, followed by Lady Epping.Not very promising, but it works to perfection in the third film, Mexican Spitfire Out West.Its a bedroom farce with Carmelita threatening to divorce Dennis and run off to England with Lord Epping (Uncle Matt in disguise).The real Lord Epping arrives unexpectedly, followed by Lady Epping.A comedy of mistaken identity.Maybe the funniest movie ever made.I can't help it; I couldn't stop laughing.
