Storyline

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 Huggo

Amiable filler...

This is a short subject film that appears to be a showcase for several musical groups. Such films were commonly used to test out new talent--to sort of toss the acts out to the audiences to see how they were received and to give them experience in front of the camera.

Hal Le Roy plays a dopey young man who loses job after job because he spends most of his time dreaming. Several of his dreams come to life in this film. While this did not turn out to a breakout film for Le Roy, he was pretty good dancer and somewhat likable. In addition to Le Roy, you see performances by the Eton Boys (in a nice little singing number) and Mitzi Mayfair dancing with Le Roy. None of it is great, but it's also pleasant and competent--and worth seeing as an extra on the DVD of THE LITTLE GIANT (with Edward G. Robinson)--especially so you can see the bizarre barber pole dance (just watch those legs go) as well as the uber-weird final scene. You just have to see this part for yourself!!
