Columbia Comedy Shorts

Much like the movie trailers of today, short subject films usually preceded the main attraction from the late 1920s to the early 1950s. But unlike modern movie trailers, the movie shorts were often more popular than the main features they introduced. Comedy shorts, or “two-reel” shorts as they were known, usually lasted sixteen to twenty minutes.  Columbia Pictures led the industry in making some of the finest comedy shorts.
