A Little Salty for the Time
5 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A window peeping villainous guy watches a young woman through her window while she changes clothes. He burst in on her with demands of her going with him. Hmmm! She handles herself but the whole thing is pretty strange for 1932. Anyway, some little guy, hr boyfriend shows up to save the day. They escape through the window and ride away in his Oldsmobile. This turns out to be one of the "follow the bouncing ball" cartoons that were popular with movie goers at the time. It is quite cleverly done, using not just the little white ball but a whole series of methods to do the sing along. What I'm most interested in is a modern reaction to the end of this thing. All I can say, it's not the most enlightened way of looking at things. See for yourself.
