Nice song, but not a particularly enjoyable short.
4 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In Bing Crosby's earliest films, he appeared in some shorts directed by Mack Sennett--the same guy who practically invented slapstick during the early days of silent comedies. So, it's not surprising that in addition to the singing, there is a bit of comedy in these shorts. In the case of "I Surrender Dear", the joke (snuch as it is) is that Bing can't convince people he IS Bing Crosby. In two cases, they actually think he's a masher and all sorts of complications ensue. Unfortunately, none of this is particularly funny though Crosby seems to try his best. In addition, you get to hear Bing sing his bit hit "I Surrender Dear" and it's actually the best part of the film. Interesting for Crosby fans to see what this future star was like in his early days, otherwise pretty easy to skip.
