A deleted number featuring Jimmy Durante and Polly Moran, a spoof of "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" from 42nd Street (1933) entitled "Fly Away to Ioway", wound up on the cutting room floor. Footage from this deleted number does survive. See more »
This is really a scrapbook of bits linked together by the word "party."
If you have ever wondered why The Three Stooges are so called, it is because they began life in vaudeville as the butt of Ted Healy's gags. In this film we see a rare instance of Healy and his stooges in action.
Classic is the piece where Lupe Velez teams up with Laurel and Hardy. A battle begins, which has since been quoted in a number of compilation films.
Perhaps the piece which steals the show is the colour cartoon by Disney. I have never ever seen it shown on Disney programmes, even though it is one of his best sequences.
It's worth watching just for these three features.
