An early thirties automobile buff's delight.
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A delight to watch all the way around. Leon Errol is most enjoyable, a grand old trouper. It is another Vitaphone gem from the early days of sound pictures. The Technicolor is magnificent and, I think, the earliest three strip process film I have ever seen. The songs are catchy and the chorus cute. For the auto buff in the family it is a feast to behold.Not only are the cars gorgeous, but you can see their original colors. I especially enjoyed seeing the late twenties Rolls Royce,yellow and black, touring car as well as other American cars of that era. Would love to see more like it. I wish you could get a collection of these shorts on DVD. Wonderful bit of nostalgia from those halcyon days long gone.
