The Caddy

Synopsis: The origin of Anthony and Miller, a wildly successful comedy team, can be traced back several years to Harvey Miller's stage fright on the golf links. Although the son of a skilled golfer and an outstanding player in his one right, Miller is too nervous to golf in front of a gallery. He becomes coach and caddy for Joe Anthony, his girlfriend's brother, who must convince his fisherman father that hitting a little ball into a hole can be more lucrative than trawling the Pacific Ocean. While on the PGA tour, their natural comedic abilities are recognized by a shrewd agent who senses their talent and potential, and a new comedy team is born.

- Hi.

- Hello.

- Who'd you come to see?

- You!

Oh, that's swell.

- What do you people want?

- Pictures!

- Do we have any pictures?

- Well, why don't one of us go see?

Okay, I'll be back in a week.

No, he'll be right back.

He'll be right back.

Here. Look, Joe. You all ready?

All right, now get set.

There they go.

Here they...

I'm all right. I'm all right.

Go get them!

- Goodbye.

- What a town!

Boy, you'd think we had made

the first flight to the moon and back.

And after every show

the crowds get bigger.

Yeah, remember

when I used to be scared of crowds?

- Yeah.

- No more. I like them.

- They're only people.

- That's nice.

Hark! Someone's knocking at the door.

- Answer it. Answer it.

- All righty.

- Oh, hi, Eddie.

- Well, hello, Eddie.

What's happened to you?

It took three cops and a squad of ushers

to get us into the theater.

Boys, I'd like you to meet Miss Lorelei.

- How do you do?

- Hello, Miss Lorelei.

How do you do?

Oh, that's our boy, the biggest agent

in town and the easiest laugher.

Here, watch this.

Miss Lorelei,

I want you to meet my mom and pop.

- How do you do?

- I'd like you to meet my mom and pop.

They ain't here.

Miss Lorelei's doing a story

for the American Weekly.

You boys seem to have more fun

than the customers.

Oh, we do.

Isn't it wonderful

when people love their work?

- The food is ready.

- Oh, can I fix you a sandwich?

- No, I'll just take some notes.

- That's not very nourishing.

Here, why don't you try

some of this terrific corned beef

- and salami and...

- Now, about my story...

Oh, yes, well, sit right down here,

and we'll find out

just how everything came about.

Now, how long have you been

in the business?

- About 12 years.

- 12 years. And where were you born?

- Scranton.

- Scranton?

Oh, that is a coincidence.

- Were you boys born in Scranton?

- No.

Is this your first engagement

at the Paramount?

- Oh, I don't work here.

- Then what are you doing here?

I came to get an interview from you.

Well, you better hurry up.

We're almost on, dear.

- Now, what would you like to know?

- Hey, fellows, two minutes.

Two minutes?

What happened to the time?

You and Pop, you want to go

in the wings and watch the show?

Did you leave the props on the piano

in the last show?

- Come on.

- I got the horns, Joe.

- What else do we have, we...

- We don't use the horns this show.

- Oh, well, hold these, Mama.

- Come on, Miss Lorelei, with us.

But I want to know

how you boys got together.

- Well, what about it?

- Well, what do you expect to do next?

Oh, we're going to play

some more theaters

and keep working, that's all.

- Come on. Jump, jump, jump!

- Come on.

This way. Come on through here.

Jump. Come on. Don't be...

- We gotta go on. Jump!

- Right.

- Come on, jump off. Come on!

- That's a good girl.

- Oh, you fraidy cat.

- No, no.

What are you afraid of? Well, we're on!

- You enter from that side.

- And you enter from that side.

- And are you ready, Mr. Anthony?

- I sure am, Mr. Miller.

- Here we go.

- Right-o.

So here he is, Harvey Miller.

Hello.

Come on, step to the rear of the bus.

We're coming into 34th Street.

I'd like to say

how very happy and thrilled we are,

ladies and gentlemen,

to be appearing here

at the Paramount Theater,

and how nice it is

to see all you nice people.

I could stay out here for hours,

but the Italian street singer

is getting old.

So I would like to introduce my buddy,

pal and partner, Mr. Joe Anthony.

Here he is.

Don't you want me to sing a song?

Oh, yeah, but I thought you and I
