Not bad.
22 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Yesterday, I watched "Betty Boop's Rise to Fame" and a huge chunk of "Stopping the Show" was included in this later cartoon--which is also made up of two other Betty Boop cartoons plus a rare chance to see Max and Dave Fleischer.

"Stopping the Show" begins with TONS of patrons filling a huge theater. First comes a very boring 'Noose Reel', then a very abbreviated Bimbo and KoKo cartoon. Following this the audience awakens from its slumber--it's time for Betty to come on stage and perform. She does musical imitations--including Fanny Brice and Maurice Chevalier. I gotta be honest--her Chevalier is godawful and painful to hear!! The next act is supposed to go on, but the cheering audience necessitates many curtain calls for Betty.

All in all, a mildly entertaining cartoon but one whose weakest link is Betty. As I mentioned above, her imitation of Chevalier is painful. Still, the film has some charm and the usual high quality animation from the Fleischer Brothers Studio.
