The Arnold Stang Show (track #10 on TV Turkeys (Rhino, 1987)). [Category: Early Film & TV]

This five-minute early 50s "short-short" show featuring comedian Arnold Stang is both lame and weird. The jokes are lame and sexist, but Stang also adds short film clips to try to punch things up, which makes it weirder than it might be otherwise. He gets a lot of mileage from a rather upsetting clip of a man hitting a woman––this was supposed to be funny? Deserves its presence on TV Turkeys.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
