Comic Strip of Week- Trading Places

This week's Sunday strip from 1946 features Russell Stamm having fun with the 1880's story The Prince and the Pauper and is very similar to the 1980's comedy Trading Places. Two overly wealthy financiers, Mr. Lovcash and Mr. Smelbucks, wager on what is the secret of success - luck or skill - as Lovcash switches places with the owner of a vegetable cart. As Mark Twain, Eddie Murphy, and Dan Aykroyd all conceded, it is a recipe for wackiness!
