Not as good as the Mack Sennett shorts.
11 March 2005 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This short subject was done by Paul Whiteman's Rhythm boys shortly after they finished The King of Jazz where lead singer Bing Crosby made his motion picture debut. Shortly afterwards the trio broke up and Bing went solo and the rest was history.

It's amusing, not as good as Crosby's Mack Sennett shorts which he did before making his first starring role in The Big Broadcast. The trio isn't even the center of the plot. They're just three of a whole gang of students from Tait College who patronize a tailor named Ginsberg who is called Ripstitch.

An actor named Nat Carr is Ginsberg and he's the pivotal role of this short. He certainly is the quintessential Jewish tailor.

The one number that the Rhythm Boys do is a satiric version of the Maine Stein Song which coincidentally was a big hit for Crosby's crooning rival Rudy Vallee.

Try as I may though, I've never known too many Jewish families who name their daughters Mary. But you'll find it here though.

Bing should never be judged by this short subject.
