Hiss and Yell


In this typical Vera Vague 2-reel comedy, the scatterbrained Vera mistakes a stage magician, Bluebeard the Great (Barton Yarborough), for a murderer.The "victim," as it turns out, was merely a dummy and part of the act. Not one of the Columbia short subject department's better efforts, Hiss and Yell was nevertheless nominated for an Academy Award in the short subject category, the second Vera Vague farce so honored. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
