As the titles says, this short shows us the Fiesta of Santa Barbara but the story of this is just hogwash since the real reason to see this short is due to all the famous stars. Warner Baxter, Ida Lupino, the Garland Sisters, Edmund Lowe, Robert Taylor, Harpo Marx, Pete Smith, Buster Keaton, Gary Cooper, Jim Thorpe and countless other stars make cameos here so this cast alone makes this worth watching. Shot in Technicolor and received an Oscar nomination.
If you're interested in seeing this short then Turner Classic Movies shows it quite often.
