At "Satan & Co., Inc.", the Devil is upset because too many people are going up to Heaven rather than down to Hades. He gives his assistant, Mr. Burns the task of getting more people to his domain. In front of a nightclub, Mr. Burns invites a crowd of people to come inside to "The Devil's Cabaret" and be entertained. After they enjoy songs and dancing, the people go willingly to Hades.

once again the remarkable TCM (the only network consistently worth watching- if i only had one station, this would be it) has discovered a remarkable little gem. this is a very early 1930s color short - real color, not tint, and it's very well done. the music (by dmitri tiomkin) is quite good and the dancing, especially the strip is very lively and fun to watch. Charles Middleton (better known as Ming the Merciless) shows up as Satan. hope you come across this some night on TCM!!!
