Parts of the Max Fleischer Screen Song Aloha Oe survives and that part was pretty charming
Just watched part of this Max Flesicher Screen Song cartoon on the Uncle John's Crazy Town site. I say part because according to Uncle John, the live-action segments with the Royal Samoans are missing and presumed lost. What is available is some pretty entertaining dances like a lion wearing a hula that becomes his hair, a couple of snakes that swallow some big rocks and become maracas, some birds jumping on a branch, and another animal eating a giant cake with candles which he then spits out which lands in a box of firecrackers...Oh, just watch the 3 minutes that remains of this cartoon on the site I just mentioned and marvel at the unique Fleischer humor that was allowed to flower before the Production Code took some of that charm away. So on that note, I recommend Aloha Oe and I hope the rest of it is found real soon.
