America's Song Stylist

That's how Arthur Jarrett, who sings three songs in this Fleischer Screen Song is credited. He is a tenor who sings "Silent Love" "One Hour with You" and the Betty Boop theme. Betty appears briefly, bopping along to Jarrett's singing.

Like most of the Screen Songs of this period, it's animators Myron Waldman and Willard Bowsky who did the actual work. At the Fleischers, brother Dave was credited as director of all the cartoons. However, in reality, he served as supervising producer, telling his staff to cram in another couple of gags.

Although Mr. Jarrett's singing is rather bland in the style then current, the set-up is amusing: a man is trying to paint, b the kids are making too much noise, so they all travel to the country. The ending sequence is a bizarre sequence of bits with a rather threatening ending. Although not the best of the Screen Songs, it's a solid piece and, as usual, very watchable
