Watch the Birdie
- 1 hr 10 min
Comic genius Red Skelton plays a triple role in this carefree farce about a photographer who falls for a rich girl and gets mixed up with crooks. Photo shop proprietor Rusty Cameron (Skelton) dreams of becoming an ace cinematographer, but he gets involved with a gang of crooked land developers and almost messes up his relationship with Lucia Corlaine (Arlene Dahl) by spending too much time with contest winner "Miss Lucky Vista" (Ann Miller). The best scene involves Rusty's man-to-man talks with his father and grandfather, both also played by Skelton.
