Bubbles is of interest to fans of Mae Questal and Judy Garland and no one else
27 January 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

When I found a bio of Mae Questal on Wikipedia, I discovered that one of her films was something called Bubbles. That title fascinated me so I clicked that name and found out that Judy Garland-who was still known at the time as Baby or Frances Gumm and was performing with her much older sisters at age 7-was also in this short. In fact, it might have been her film debut. Anyway, the future Betty Boop sang at the beginning and sounded pretty good. Ms. Garland herself has a brief solo but I really couldn't understand what she sang. Still, she also sounded pretty good. I should mention that she, and many other kids, are in costume. Also, those other kids do some dancing that weren't very exciting, to tell the truth. All of them seem to be watched by a middle-aged man who, yeah, does seem creepy! In summary, Bubbles is a fascinating curio for any Questal and Garland completists out there but I don't really recommend this.
