Mary Jane Gumm,
Hollywood stars participate in a Mexican-themed revue and festival in Santa Barbara. Andy Devine, the "World's Greatest Matador", engages in a bullfight with a dubious bovine supplied by Señor Keaton, and musical numbers are provided by Joe Morrison and the Garland Sisters. Comedy bits and dance numbers are also featured. Written by
An early Technicolor short. It's about a purportedly annual festival held in California to celebrate Mexico...or something like that. There is no plot really--this is just a chance to see some actors in color and some novelty acts. Andy Devine and Buster Keaton do a truly horrible "comic" routine about bullfighting. Wait till you see the bull Devine has to fight! There's a somewhat cute song called "Last Roundup"; Ida Lupino and Mary Carlisle are two cowgirls; you see Robert Taylor, Harpo Marx, Gary Cooper and Ted Healey (without the Stooges) and Judy Garland before she hit it big with her sisters (they're billed as the Gumm Sisters). Bright, breezy and colorful. It's only about 20 minutes long and pops up on TCM in a beautifully restored print. Worth catching.
