This is truly an amazing video as I always associated blooper reels as being a product of the 60's and of television. Turns out they have been making blooper reels ever since the 1930's. These are fascinating as well as hilarious to watch. The video and information about the video was obtained at Archive.Org. These are most of the surviving Blooper reels produced by The Warner Club an organization comprising Warner Bros Stars and Crew. These reels were produced most years and shown at their annual dinner to poke fun at the mistakes that had been made during that year's productions. Some of the people who appear:
Eddie Acuff, Eddie Albert, Mary Astor, Ralph Bellamy, Humphrey Bogart, Walter Brennan, George Brent, Sheila Bromley, James Cagney, Claudette Colbert, Walter Connolly, Gary Cooper, Bette Davis, Errol Flynn, Henry Fonda, Dick Foran, Kay Francis, John Garfield, Bonita Granville, Rita Hayworth, Hugh Herbert, Ian Hunter, Isabel Jeans, Paul Kelly, Patric Knowles, Margaret Lindsay, Gene Lockhart, Carole Lombard, Paul Muni, Pat O'Brien, Hugh O'Connell, Nat Pendleton, Mary Philips, Dick Powell, Dick Purcell, George Raft, Claude Rains, Basil Rathbone, Ronald Reagan, George Reeves, Addison Richards, Edward G.
