February 7, 2017 (Spring Valley) - Saps at Sea will hold its second meeting of the year on March 25 in Williams Hall at Trinity Church in Spring Valley.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:00 p.m.

Grand Sheik John Field has assembled a night you will not soon forget. There will be a "Special" guest author in attendance, Mr. Craig Calman, author of "100 Years of Brodies with Hal Roach: The Jaunty Journeys of a Hollywood Motion Picture and Television Pioneer". A loving look at the man responsible for being the boss of Stan and Ollie and their comedy classics.  Field will interview Craig and he will share great stories and anecdotes. You can also purchase his fine book and have it autographed for a measly $30!

The special program is JUST ONE MORE TEENSY-WEENSY.... Stan & Ollie and Alcohol, rarely mix. In this case hilariously so! You will see a glass lifting cartoon, then what happens when you mix two vagrants, a mad judge that wants them out of town, a drunken benefactor (The always inebriated Arthur Housman) and a tipsy Woman.... everything, in SCRAM! (1932) The guest comedian will be Red Skelton, who provides a demonstration of the wonders of Guzzler's Gin. After a tasty (alcohol free) intermission, the Saps will air the recently restored BLOTTO (1930). Stan and Babe decide a night on the town is in order. Off to a nightclub they go with some Prohibition Booze...they think. What happens when Stan's wife (Anita Garvin) gets a little suspicious?
