Rambling 'Round Radio Row #3 (1932)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Future character actor J.C. Flippen hosts this Vitaphone short, which takes place at a pool party where several music guests get up and do a song. This here leads to various water sports and more and more acts get up. This here is a minor step up from the previous two films in the series mainly due to this getting off to a great start thanks to Tess Gardella doing a blistering version of "I Have Nobody". We also have William Hall doing a nice version of "Deep In Your Eyes" and even Baby Rose Marie stops by for a quick number. Fans of Flippen aren't going to believe their eyes when they see him here but he does a nice job getting this off to a good start as he's certainly got enough energy for two films. The musical acts here are a lot better than in previous films and I'm sure Baby Rose will have several people tuning in. The Lombardo Brothers are also on hand as is Johnny Marvin.
