If you watch enough Turner Classic Movies then you've surely ran into one of the various shorts made between Warner and Vitaphone. This one here features Skinnay Ennis, someone I had never heard of before, and he does four fairly good numbers even if none of them are what you'd call masterpieces. 'Three Little Words' is jitterbug all the way and not only do we get Ennis performing the music but we get a couple dancers who do a very nice job as well. According to the IMDb the dancers are unknown but both are impressive. Cole Porter's 'Let's Do It' is performed by an uncredited singer and she too is pretty good. There are a couple scenes where we get to see the "inspiration" for the song including 'A Boy, a Girl and the Lamplight' which has the "action" of a man and woman meeting (you guessed it) under a lamplight. Fans of these types of musicals will want to check it out but it's certainly far from the best out there.
