      Comments about The Phynx:

      I just watched THE PHYNX. The Warner Archive had a sale, so i figured why not?. The Phynx is a great film for Classic Films fans to enjoy. But, mostly for the various cameos made by Classic Hollywood Favorites. Among them, Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan (the most famous movie Tarzan and Jane), Ed Sullivan, James Brown, Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame (!), Guy Lombardo, Andy Devine, Ruby Keeler, Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy, Butterfly McQueen, The Lone Ranger (John Hart) Jay Silverheels (Tonto), Rudy Vallee, Xavier Cugat, Trini Lopez, Dick Clark, Richard Pryor, Harold "Oddjob" Sakata, George Jessel, and Rhona Barrett. And very happily Leo Gorcey and Huntz Hall. The thing that bothered me most about Leo and Huntz, was the fact that the director did not choose to linger long enough on the duo so that they could do some schtick. I always thought the frustrated expressions and gestures of Huntz Hall were among many reasons to enjoy his persona. In this film, the cutaways from our duo lesson their impact as cameo stand outs. Mostly forgettable songs are sprinkled thruout the film. If you want a desription of the plot....there is not much of one. Warner Execs were so disappointed by the final film, they decided not to release it!. So thanks to the Warner Archive, we can now view this fascinating relic. Recommended.
