A different Pete Smith Specialty
12 May 2008 | by jtyrolerSee all my reviews

A Smith named Pete made quite a few shorts for MGM. In this installment, working with Dave O'Brien (of "Reefer Madness" fame, and quite a few of Pete Smith's shorts - uh, that sounds a little weird - short films, not his actual shorts), they give a quiz on horses. We learn that twin colts "are about as rare as whiskers on a mackerel". Dave O'Brien also appears in this short - trying to put a saddle on a horse. O'Brien seems pretty willing to go through just about anything for visual humor - he usually doesn't speak during Smith's short films.

This short asks several questions about various things about horses, races, and betting. Smith has a somewhat sarcastic sense of humor, although it can seem dated. Personally, I think this is one of the better Pete Smith's Specialties.
