A cute little Vitaphone short, 1 December 2007
Author: robcat2075 from United States

A cute little short, Gracie shines, George doesn't quite have the straight man perfected but he'll get there.

I wonder how they did this act in vaudeville with no microphones or amplification.

The most disorienting element is seeing them both so young, 10 years before their radio stardom and 20-30 before their TV show.

Someone should have told George to tilt his fedora away from the camera so we could see his face better.

I'm impressed with the sound. 1929 is still the stone age for movie sound but audio superiority of Vitaphone's sound on disc system really shows here.
