Another double feature idea


With home video, you can make your own double features. The trick is to find two movies that will complement one another, which have similar themes but approach them in different ways. I've suggested other double features over the years. Here's one more:

Woody Allen's Match Point --a working class Irish tennis pro marries into a wealthy British family.

and

The Sweet Pie and Pie, (1941) Three Stooges short where three heiresses marry the Stooges while they (the Stooges) are in prison awaiting imminent execution. The heiresses have to marry in order to collect their inheritance. But moments after the wedding and before the execution, news arrives that the real killers confessed and the boys are pardoned, released and go home with their horrified brides.
