Critics reviews

Fifty Million Frenchmen (1931) is a showcase for the antics of Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson, who had been working as a duo since the late teens… They were known for their boundary dissolving stage shows which strung clotheslines from balcony to balcony to dry their wash, had cows falling from the ceiling, and dubbed Hitler into Yiddish. This kind of madcap deconstruction wouldn’t show up on film until Hellzapoppin’ in 1941, but there some evidence of their insanity in Fifty Million Frenchmen.
