Anita Ragusa, the daughter of a costume company owner, delivers a dress for a costume ball at the last minute.

Charlie, a drunk partygoer, sees Anita in the dress and invites her to attend the festivities. She reluctantly agrees and sings for the other guests.

Decent Etting short

Modern Cinderella, A (1932)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Warner short has Ruth Etting playing a poor shop owner's daughter who is sent to a lavish party so that she can deliver a dress to a rich girl. The stuck up one doesn't like the dress so she has Etting put it on who eventually gets mistaken for "one of them" and is asked to sing. When Etting's name is brought up today it's usually because someone is mentioning Doris Day who played her in the classic LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME. This here was my second or third short with Etting and I'm pretty much in the middle. There's nothing bad about her but then again there's nothing overly great either. She doesn't have the greatest voice in the world but it is a unique one and I did enjoy her big number here. The film is well directed by Mack who keeps everything moving and the 17-minutes really flew by. The supporting cast wasn't overly strong and that includes the comedy relief by the drunks.
