Porky’s Double Trouble

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Frank Tashlin cartoon of 1937 involving a switch between Porky and a nogoodnik lookalike who is, naturally, quite different from Porky in character -- especially when kissing Petunia.

    To a certain extent, the cartoon borrows from the plot of The Whole Town’s Talking, a 1935 film directed by John Ford, in which a bank clerk played by Edward G. Robinson is a dead ringer for a notorious crook.
