This one would have been better if they'd dropped the live-action and the sing along and added more animation, but it wouldn't have been a Screen Song then, now would it?

The songs that Rudy Vallee sings in this are not terribly well known almost 70 years later. This is understandable, because there isn't anything special or memorable about them. The cartoon is first-rate, but the rest is a boring waste of time. There is a cute interaction between Betty Boop and Rudy Vallee, but the rest is a total loss except for the animation. In print and available on a tape worth getting for everything else on it but this. Watch the animation here, but when the ball starts bouncing, watch only if you are suffering insomnia, as this will cure you of that fairly swiftly. For Betty Boop/Fleischer diehards.
