STRIKE ME PINK.

VHS_StrikeMePink[VHS: Samuel Goldwyn Home Entertainment – 1936 – 100 mins]. Eddie Cantor and Ethel Merman co-star in this madcap musical comedy, set in a raucous amusement park. Eddie takes over the management of Dreamland Park, which is threatened by a pay-off racket and a gang of thugs, adamant on installing hundreds of slot machines into the park. But the wily comedian outwits the mobsters and delivers the laughs in his flamboyant style. ANDY SHINE SAYS: This title is also available on DVD. It features many fleeting shots of ‘Dreamland’ (real life Nu Pike Amusement Park in Long Beach, California) and the action escalates towards a rather awe-inspiring four-minute comedic stunt-laden chase over and aboard the Cyclone Racer roller coaster. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair / Good.
