Axe for Turkeys (film #1 on Universal Newsreels). [Category: Hollywood]

Silent newsreel clip from the early 30s featuring a whole bunch of turkeys running to be fed, then running away from a guy sharpening an axe. Animal distress seemed to be a main source of humor during the 30s. I’m glad we’ve made a little progress with this since then. The images of the turkeys are fairly striking, though.

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