Mill Creek Comedy Classics: The Checklist!

In October 2012, for the grand total of ten dollars, I purchased a Mill Creek DVD set entitled 100 Comedy Classics. I did not actually get around to watching or reviewing any of these films until June 2013, but I've been chipping away at them steadily since then. Now that the project is well under way, I wanted to have a page where readers could easily find links to all the reviews in the series. That's the point of this article. There's no new content here, just links to all the previous "Comedy Classics" articles. As the project progresses, I'll keep updating this list. If, for any reason, you should ever want to immerse yourself in reviews of obscure, public domain comedies from the 1930s and 1940s, this article can be easily accessed at tinyurl.com/millcreekcomedyclassics. The "About This Blog" section in the right-hand margin will also have a link directly to this page.

I've color-coded some items on the list, by the way, to denote especially significant reviews. GREEN is for movies I especially liked, generally sleepers that deserve a bigger audience. RED is for movies I especially hated and found torturous to watch. PURPLE is for movies generally acknowledged by critics and historians to be Hollywood classics.
