Throwback Thursday Comedy Classic: Sid Caesar's Newspaper Movie (1952)

 
We love Throwback Thursdays because they give us an opportunity to revisit some of the funniest comedy skits from the days when talented performers like Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca could take the time to create a story line and follow it to its conclusion.

One of these classic comedy skits was a satiric spoof of movies involving newspaper reporters and criminals. In this Newspaper Movie that we found on YouTube, Sid and Imogene are reporters and the bad guys include Carl Reiner and Howard Morris. 

Unlike today's' Saturday Night Live skits, it's 12 minutes long, but we think it's worth watching. We hope you'll enjoy it, too. It originally was aired on Your Show of Shows on November 22, 1952. Yes, it's hard to believe that it was 65 years ago.
