Moran and Mack, white comics who wore burnt cork on their faces and billed themselves as "The Two Black Crows," re-create some of their best vaudeville routines in this loosely plotted comedy. The two weave their sketches around a story involving Brent, who attempts to take Moran to the

cleaners. She and her boy friend try their best but the "Crows" manage to come through in the end. In between are some of the team's best known comedy routines, including "Head Man," "Let's Not Talk about That," and the popular "Early Bird Gets the Worm." Like the later Amos and Andy, Moran and

Mack were funny in their day but seem crudely racist today. Still, for a simple comedy this is well put together and an important historical record of what vaudeville comedy was like a long time ago.
