TOBY WING IN TECHNICOLOR!
23 January 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay... I realize that the average film buff is more interested in Judy Garland's appearance (singing 'La Cucaracha' complete with the marijuana fumar' references) or the fact that this is one of MGM's earliest attempts at 3-strip Technicolor. But the bang for my TCM dollars is in seeing TOBY WING in that red cowboy shirt... she is the best argument I've ever seen for human cloning. There's also a protracted bit with Andy Devine and Buster Keaton (Was he happy to be out of Educational Pictures and back at MGM? Who can tell?) that involves bullfighting two guys in a cow suit, quick shots of folks like Gary Cooper, Warner Baxter and a very un-PC Leo Carrillo exhibiting a shocking lack of handgun safety. Also look for Ted Healy re-arranging a party crasher's nose (he's just not the same without the Stooges). For Toby Wing's appearance alone this is worth seeing... the typically hypo-nasal Ted Smith's least intrusive narrations and the production values make this a top notch mid-30's short.
