Storyline

Betty Boop is performing in a stage melodrama with a pretty-boy for a romantic hero and the usual slimy moustache-twirler for a villain. The villain, of course, wants Betty for his own. He ties the hero to a tree and then goes to work tempting Betty. He shows her an enormous diamond with a tiny light bulb inside to make it light up. He shows her a plate of oysters, each with a pearl inside. He shows her a fur coat that moths eat up the moment she rejects it. Nothing works. He resorts to grabbing her and throwing her inside his hot-air balloon, where he hopes to escape from the pretty-boy hero. Written by J. Spurlin

Pretty much "She Wronged Him Right" all over again.
4 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

In 1934, the Fleischer Brothers made a Betty Boop cartoon called "She Wronged Him Right". It was a recreation of a very old style melodrama--the sort of campy stage show that folks loved around the turn of the century. It featured a Dick Dastardly sort of baddie, a dashing hero and a young, innocent woman the baddie is trying to force to marry her.

Now, a year later, the studio has brought out "No! No! A Thousand Time No!" and, it's essentially the same exact film! The hero is the same, the baddie is just as bad and Betty once again fills in for the heroine. In fact it's so similar, I see no reason to see it if you've already seen the previous film. As for me, it was all a case of deja-vu and I found it tough going because it was so similar...and lazy. High quality animation can't make up for a recycled story.
