Hollywood's famous Cocoanut Grove nightclub stages a Star Night-only musical revue in which many Hollywood actors attend. Staged is the operative word. Entertainers include Ted Fio Roit and his orchestra, Eduardo Durant's Tango Band, and the Fancho & Marco Sunkist Beauties. Leo Carrillo acted as the Master of Ceremonies, and introduces a galaxy of stars from their tables. Those higher on the 1935 pecking order, Mary Pickford, Jack Oakie, Arline Judge, Bing Crosby and Gary Cooper, come to the microphone and do a bit...mostly chit-chatting bits. Written by Les Adams <>

in 3 strip Technicolor.
18 July 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This glorious short, similar to STARLIT DAYS AT THE LIDO, also from 1934 are Technicolor tests to see how the three-color YCM processing of sets and clothes with patterns overlaps and registrations has succeeded. It is a night in the Cocoanut grove with stars at tables, the orchestras and guests... but wow, how visually gorgeous is it...! To see any modern Hollywood life times of 1934 in full color is a treat... this one has Leo Carillo introducing various stars (see other comment) in this glamor palace.... but for me the sight and presence of hilarious handsome comedy- voice artist Johnny Candido (only 21 here) in a tux singing 'She's Up thar' with an octave range more than any piano I know is utterly charming and delicious... as is Mary Pickford in a gold dress and afterwards,a jawdropping fashion parade of absolutely spectacular Cleopatra palace gowns. Orchestra leader Ted Fio Rio plays as well. He went to Monogram in the 40s for their biggest musicals SILVER SKATES and LADY LETS DANCE. Johnny Candido was also seen in ROBERTA and SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT. He is just charming. You can find this treasure on the Warner DVD for The Gay Divorcée. This disc also contains a delightful kiddie vaudeville short also in fantastic Technicolor... as Vitaphone treat called SHOWKIDS. Get this disc. It is a completely perfect art deco musical thrill.
