This skit is performed on a Hollywood sound stage. You have a director, cameraman, and actors: Doctor, leading man, and maiden. The man is on his death bed. Maiden runs to call for the doctor, and the doctor comes and says he can't help. With the maiden at his side, the man dies in her arms. The maiden sobs on the doctor's shoulder. The Director every time stops the movie here and changes the directions: Too slow, too fast, too sad, too happy. The real fun comes from the actors following the instructions, fast is running, and voices like bees, slow is slow motion, etc. (when the man dies slow, it takes forever.) The last direction is to do it normally, everyone performs, and the director is pleased. The director instructs them to do it again and says to the cameraman, now put the film in the camera!
