At 51 minutes running time, UNCLE JOE is a shorty, like the Hal Roach Streamliners of the era. With old pros like Slim Summerville and ZaSu Pitts, the enjoyment factor is high. This was one of Gale Storm's very first pictures, and she shares several scenes with ZaSu, who would be her co-star 15 years later in THE GALE STORM SHOW. There are several songs in the picture. The first, Woogie Hula, is competently sung by the Tanner Sisters, whom I recognize from ALL American CO-ED.The second, sung very nicely by a singer known as Honey Lamb, is The Land of Nod. This song has possibly the most bizarre lyrics ever heard in a picture. Gale Storm does not sing here, but she does play the accordion. In all, this pleasant little picture will give you a few chuckles in it's brief running time. If you like Gale Storm, ZaSu Pitts or Slim Summerville, this will appeal to you.
