Dana Carvey Spoofs “The 39 Steps”

6 05 2010

Hey, remember “Clean Slate,” the 1994 comedy starring Dana Carvey, with an awesome cast including Valeria Golino (“Big-Top Pee-Wee,” “Rain Man,” “Hot Shots!”), James Earl Jones (“Star Wars,” “Coming to America”), Kevin Pollack (tons of movies), Michael Gambon (the second movie Dumbledore), Olivia D’Abo (lots of animation voiceover work), Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order”), Bob Odenkirk (“Mr. Show,” “Tom Goes to The Mayor”) and Ian Abercrombie (Elaine’s boss on “Seinfeld” who ate candy bars with a knife and fork)?


Remember when Dana Carvey made movies?

Not so much?

Okay, you do remember Dana Carvey, right? Funny guy, did a great George Bush impression? No, not that one – the first George Bush.

That’s right, the guy who played the Church Lady and Wayne’s sidekick Garth and sang about broccolli. I remember one time on Saturday Night Live he played a weird Chinese pet shop guy who told people not to keep chickens as house pets.

Okay, so in 1994 he starred in this movie, “Clean Slate.” There’s a scene in that movie that’s a parody – really, it’s more a replication – of the scene in “The 39 Steps” when Richard Hannay finds himself on stage at a political rally.

Hilarity ensues…now:

Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Well, that’s it for tonight. Tune in again tomorrow for more coverage of “The 39 Steps.”
