I just saw this short for the first time on TCM
4 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have watched many shorts from the earlier days of Hollywood, but this one was surely the most entertaining I have seen. Florence Lake (who is a new face for me) was quite a phenomenon ... Fanny Brice ... Gracie Allen!! My thought was that she must have died young because I had never seen her (like we did her brother Arthur as Dagwood). Now I discover that she was a working actor until her death at 75. 139 movies! And so much TV work ... and I must have seen her on Superman, the Lone Ranger, or Petticoat Junction! Wow ... fame! Wonderful dance numbers and good songs ... Florence's "Springfield" number could be used by Blossom Dearie. I loved the girls' basketball number and I really cannot say enough about the "Springfield" song. Don't know who wrote it but "cheers" for them too.
