The Inimitable Lilian Roth
7 September 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

That's how the lady is credited in this typical Fleischer Screen Song. The song itself is a pleasant little ballad, neither particularly good nor outrageously awful for the era. Miss Roth's singing is excellent, her mannerisms are suited for a live stage audience, and the cartoon is filled with the apposite "When I Take My Sugar to Tea", which works well as counterpoint.

The gags, as in all of the Fleischer productions, are scattered liberally throughout; the philosophy of Dave Fleischer for all his cartoons was to throw in a lot of gags on what may seem, these days, a hit-or-miss basis, but the large number means that enough will work to keep the audience interested through one verse and three repetitions of the chorus. Worth a look.
