Song Writers' Revue, The (1930)

*** (out of 4)

MGM short has a young Jack Benny introducing eight of the world's most famous song writers who then play brief parts of their most famous songs. Gus Edwards, Dave Dreyer, Fred Ahlert, Roy Turk, Ray Heindorf, Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed, Ray Egan, Fred Fisher and Dave Snell all take part in the short. The music selections, some still known, are pretty good and this is certainly the highlight of the film. Benny adds a few quick jokes but none of them are all too funny. The film is hampered by some extremely poor filming, which at times looks as if there is a child holding the camera. The editing isn't too impressive either but this doesn't hamper the music too badly.
