Mary Jane Gumm,
This "Vitaphone Verities" is dreadful, and so crude (as entertainment) that I was surprised it was made in 1930. It looked more like one of the Warner Brothers first attempts with sound experimentation. The opening credits indicated that it was filmed in Technicolor, however the surviving print was in black and white; likely the color print is lost forever.
As a poster commented, the cigar smoking fat guy who introduced various singing and dancing acts by young girls was one creepy character, or should I say -- one very "silly man"? No, I wouldn't want him baby sitting my kids or anyone else's.
