Audience Member #3 in the 'whistling..." series very funny Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A tad too much slapstick for me, but Red Skelton definitely cracked me up several times. I wanted to murder that idiot driver by the end though. Just about every problem was caused by him, and the sheer force of his stupidity was tiresome. And I'm not sure what was going on with Red's fox howl thing. Sounded more like a wolf being slowly run over... or burned... or something else painful, but definitely not a fox. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
