Storyline

Bosko runs a movie theater. He also plays the organ and leads the audience in a sing-along. He even enters the action on screen when necessary. The movies he shows include a newsreel from Out-of-Tone Pictures ("Sees all, hears all, smells all"), which features a contentious peace conference in Geneva; a so-called bathing beauty in Malibu; a decrepit Jack Dumpsey in Reno; a wacky dog race in Epsom Salts, England; and an ax-wielding Adolf Hitler chasing Jimmy Durante in Pretzel, Germany. Next is Haurel and Lardy in "Spite of Everything." Finally, the feature film is from TNT Pictures, whose mascot is a burping lion and whose slogan is "Eenie Meanie Minie Moe." The title: "He Done Her Dirt." The subtitle: "And How!" It's a turn-of-the-century melodrama featuring a mustache-twirling villain and Honey as the damsel in distress. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

Animation historian Jerry Beck reported that late in the cartoon, Bosko says something along the lines of "The dirty fuck," but is unsure whether it was the actual line or a recording error. See more »

Goofs

A line in the sing-a-long card for "We're In The Money" is mistakenly printed as "Let's spend it, lend it...", even though the audience sings the correct line "Let's lend it, spend it...". See more »

the next picture show
14 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In what appears to be the first instance of Warner Bros. cartoons spoofing the cinema, Bosko plays the piano at the debut of Honey's movie. The Out-of-Tone News, and then the Haurel and Lardy movie, inadvertently predict cartoons like "She Was an Acrobat's Daughter", "The Film Fan" and "Bacall to Arms". Bosko's trick at the climax of Honey's movie resembles the scenes in later cartoons where a silhouette appears - presumably an audience member - and interacts with the characters.

Anyway, the Termite Terrace crowd (is it too early to call them that?) was just getting started, so we can forgive them if the material doesn't recall wabbit hunts or things like that. Still worth seeing.
