A young man is having trouble holding onto a steady job because of his overactive imagination. In whatever setting he's placed, he usually thinks about dancing and/or Mitzi Mayfair, the costume designer he's in love with, but who probably doesn't even know he exists. As he goes from one job to another, he starts off well, but his imagination gets him into trouble. Is there a job where his imagination will both be a benefit and where he gets the girl of his dreams? Written by
Weak Vitaphone short manages to have a few bright spots...
These Vitaphone musical shorts are as dated as can be, both with respect to the songs involved and the dance choreography.
Limber Hal LeRoy is an imaginative young man who can't hold onto a job because he's constantly dreaming of his sweetheart crush on Mitzi Mayfair, a musical comedy actress.
Whether running an elevator or selling magazines behind a counter, he just can't seem to get anywhere with Mitzi on his mind. One of his inspirations comes from a dance he imagines while gazing across the street at a barber shop pole. Lo and behold, Mitzi is soon doing a rather weird dance routine for the finale.
Easy to see why Hal LeRoy never made it as a top tier player at Warner Brothers, but whatever happened to Miss Mayfair? I'll have to check out her biography (if available) but she only had a short list of film credits.
