Storyline

George and Gracie enter an elegant drawing room, looking everywhere for something. Turns out, they're looking for the audience, and when George spots the camera, they start in on their patter. Gracie wants to convince George that she's smart, not dizzy - it's an uphill struggle of which she's blissfully unaware. Midway through, they break into song: "Do You Believe Me?" It includes a little bit of hoofing as the chatting continues. They end on a story Gracie whispers into George's ear. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Jazz Singer Disc 3
27 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

At the Seashore (1929)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Paul Tremaine and His Aristocrats (1929)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Child Wonder, The (1929)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Lambchops (1929)

*** (out of 4)

Happy Hottentots, The (1930) ** 1/2 (out of 4)

The final selection of shorts from The Jazz Singer Collection features some pretty good stuff. At the Seashore is a stand up act, which has a few laughs, although the two stars can be a bit annoying. The standout here is a male who shows up at the end and it's clearly a spoof on gay people as is the final joke, which is certainly politically incorrect. The Paul Tremaine short is probably the best I've seen as it features a loud, rocking jazz version of "I've Been Working on the Railroad". Lambchops features Burns and Allen doing a very funny comic routine followed by a song.
