        Comments about Southern Yankee, A:

        Buster Keaton was an advisor on this film and the resemblance to his classic silent film The General is no coincidence. It's a delightful comedy of errors that had me literally roaring in the aisles when I saw it in 1948 on its original release, at the age of 8. Sometimes a film doesn't age well with us as we get older, but in this case, Red Skelton's performance is a masterpiece. I also recommend other Skelton films, particularly Neptune's Daughter (1949), The Fuller Brush Man, DuBarry Was A Lady, and the Warner's trilogy of his whodunit movies.
