Fun short
3 April 2005 | by (Raleigh, NC) – See all my reviews

Interesting curio from the early thirties. I got a kick out of seeing the young Guy Lombardo, Rose Marie (really young! :-) and Jay C. Flippen in this plot-less, but fun, short.

Flippen was surprising to see in this type of setting since I'm more used to seeing him in his more tougher persona from countless TV and movie roles. He also sports a hairstyle reminiscent of Cab Calloway from the latter's heyday! His Vaudeville chops are evident here, too.

Lombardo gets to show off his championship yachting skills (with his brothers) in one segment.

Is it great art? No, but it is important historically, while still being able to entertain seventy-plus years later.

By the way, this was one of the first productions for the famous Warner Brothers producer Jerry Wald.
