Worth it for Ethel Merman
10 May 2003 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Ethel Merman in her youth looks good and sounds good, not quite as brassy as in her later years. Her song, which she performs as her human self rather than in animation, has only the flimsiest relationship to the cartoon. The cartoon is a pointless and very politically incorrect story in which Betty Boop is won over by what today would be called sexual harassment.
