In this Warner Bros. short, a Marine in a South Sea island during World War II, Joe Fingers, tells tales of the influence he's had on various personalities. In the words of one of his buddies, he's either the biggest liar in the world or the most important man in show business. He claims to be a piano player and his stories are brought to life in the minds of the boys, especially those that involve a pretty girl. When a piano arrives on the island in a shipment, he refuses to play, convincing the doubters that he's been telling them lies all along. They change their tune however when a Hollywood movie star stops on the island. Written by
Even though this film was a short-subject film, I totally enjoyed it. I found it touching and funny at the same time. I can see why Janis Page and Dane Clark would become more popular later on in their careers. I highly recommend this short film.
