Comedy (1941) 87 minutes ~ Black & White

Rich playboy Drogo Gaines is in imminent danger of marrying a gold digger, and escapes by feigning insanity. The joke’s on him when he wakes up in an asylum full of comical lunatics. There he befriends Colonel Carraway, and together they escape, catching a ride with a beautiful blonde who proves to be Penguin Moore, carnival owner. The Adventures of Drogo and the Colonel with Moore’s Carnival are replete with Hal Roach slapstick.
