When the road-show that Ted Howard, a singer, and Mary, a chorus-dancer, goes broke and the company is stranded in the sticks, Ted Uses his own savings to get them all back to New York. Ted and Mary form a team and are doing well when Valenska, a musical comedy queen, asks Ted to join her as an act. Since the offer doesn't include Mary, Ted refuses. But, Mary, who loves Ted, knows this is Ted's big chance, and she instigates a situation that leads to the break-up of their team. Ted does do well, but is also used by Valenska as her boy-toy. When they open a big show, Mary is there as a member of the chorus. This does not set well with Valenska. There are some problems. Written by Les Adams <>

In disc-tone sound
26 May 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Recently I had the wonderful experience of hearing the final disc of the set of 9 for this 1928/29 Columbia musical, which must have been one of their very first sound films. I see the IMDb lists it as sound/silent so maybe there were sequences of silent film , but as there clearly were 9 sound discs, I suggest it was a sound/talkie completely. Ted and Mary are a vaudeville act separated by a scheming Vamp who gets annoyed to see Mary turn up in her new show in which she stars with Ted. Mary is booted upstage to anonymity. However by reel 9 Ted knows who he would rather be with and runs to a radio station to call Mary back. The last reel I heard was where Ted goes to a radio station for an interview, his is upset because of leaving his girlfriend in the chorus as he became the star. They have been separated as a singing act but as he croons 'No Love Without You" or something like that, to her across the airways she realizes it is for her and rushes (in 3 mins) to the radio station to end up in his arms, out of the chorus and on their air with him together. Simple and lovely. Does the film still exist? I do not know....or of the other 8 discs... but what I enjoyed for 10 minutes was exciting enough to warrant a search. What turns up in Australia these days would have your head spinning too! The big 16'' disc clearly was labeled "final disc of 9 Columbia Pictures 1928".
