Star Trek: Voyager Alumni Robert Picardo & Michael DeMeritt Join Forces For "IT'S A FRAME-UP"
If you're in the LaLa-Land area (Los Angeles Califor-ni-ya), be sure to swing by the Laemmle's Music Hall 3 theater to check out IT'S A FRAME UP. The Michael DeMeritt (Life After Trek Episode) co-produced short will be playing Tuesday through Thursday and features another well known Voyager alumnus, Robert Picardo. IT'S A FRAME UP features 30's slapstick comedy in the style of Abbot & Costello or better yet Benny Biffle and Sam Shooster. Check out the info below to learn more.
The movie that sets comedy back 75 years--to when it was, y'know, actually funny. Those merry madcaps of mayhem, Biffle & Shooster, are back in an all-new "made in 1938" three-reel comedy (in B&W, of course) that finds them landing jobs in an art gallery--on the very day a priceless painting has been delivered. You can figure out what happens next. Making his writing/directing debut, renowned classic film distributor and independent producer Michael Schlesinger pours his love of Old Hollywood into an authentic-as-possible recreation of the glory days of comedy teams, replete with snappy dialogue, grievous puns, plenty of slapstick, familiar-seeming character actors and even impressions--plus a plot twist or two. Who says they can’t make ‘em like they used to?
