Comments about Diplomaniacs:

Among the best W&W films ever. More politics than sex and no Dorothy Lee. If you are sensitive about American Indians or blackface, skip it. If you can recognize the stereotyping and the corny humor as a product of their time, you'll love it. Woolsey's part is better than usual -- Wheeler doesn't dominate as much as in others of their pictures. Belongs on your shelf between Duck Soup (Marx Bros) and Million Dollar Legs (W.C. Fields et al). Completely out of its tiny mind.

Comments about Diplomaniacs:

Previously only available on the now defunt Laserdisc format and VHS, Diplomaniacs will now have the chance to showcase the very funny (but nearly forgotten) comedy team of Wheeler and Woolsey in their prime! Co-written by future Academy Award winning screenwriter/director Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Diplomaniacs is very risque for its time and is packed with gags in the same manner as its contemporary classic, Duck Soup. Check it out...you won't be sorry!
