"At last this great comedy star, the man who has convulsed millions in all parts of the world, is to appear on the screen. Wynn's tests reveal him as even funnier in pictures than he is behind the footlights! His first picture is a lavish, de luxe comedy production with a famous director and an all-star cast. Watch for further details."Of course, after the release of The Perfect Fool, Ed Wynn would go on to become one of the biggest comedy successes on the silver screen.
