This short starts out as a visit to a sound stage to see Pete Smith make one of his short films. When production delays occur, Smith visits other sound stages on the lot to see what else is being filmed. The audience gets to see a sleight-of-hand artist practicing his craft, a 3-year-old girl with a perfect sense of balance, and Lena Horne singing in a bathtub. Written by

Decent Pete Smith short has us going on a tour of various studios where we get to see all sorts of things including Lena Horne taking a bubble bath and singing, Louis Zingone doing a sleight of hand trick and Helen Sue Goldy doing a nice act with her father. This 9-minute short is decent but there's nothing overly entertaining here with the exception of the Horne clip, which is actually an outtake from the film CABIN IN THE SKY. The "Ain't It the Truth" song is a very good one and Horne does a terrific job with it. I'm not sure why it was cut from the film considering how good it was but perhaps it had something to do with the fact that she's in a tub? The rest of the film is mildly entertaining but there's nothing too funny or special going on.
