Another Nice Mess
Bob Einstein’s political satire brings together several unlikely duos, Laurel and Hardy, Nixon and Agnew, and Tom Smothers and Jonathan Haze. Smothers and Haze (star of The Little Shop of Horrors) produced this obscure film in 1972—obscure because an unhappy Smothers promptly buried it. Nixon and Agnew are portrayed as hapless clowns in the style of Laurel and Hardy with Rich Little playing Nixon and Herb Voland (Airplane!) as Agnew. Notable for the first, albeit brief, film appearance by Steve Martin. For better or worse, the complete movie can be seen here.
