Aborted Film Project - film never completed.

This was another musical film review which was aborted in mid-production and never finished - due to the rising unpopularity of musicals which had glutted the early talkie movie industry. Only the sound Vitaphone reel of Bing Crosby's number survives. The film's materials are thought to be lost.
