Storyline

The Morning Daily newspaper's Mr. Inquisitive column - which has the tagline "I'm Much Obliged" - is holding a contest: tell Mr. Inquisitive what you would like to do, and those stories which are printed in the newspaper are eligible for a prize. Mr. Inquisitive gets many of these stories from random telephone calls he makes. Most of those people he happens to call are performing artists, who not only tell Mr. Inquisitive what they would like to do, but show him through their performances. The Auntie Pru's Recipe column, which is adjacent to Mr. Inquisitive's and which is written by Mr. Inquisitive's exasperated and sleepless male colleague, gets Mr. Inquisitive into a few scrapes along the way.

A time-passer.
20 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The Vitaphone division of Warner Brothers was devoted to making short films--most often musical films. And, they tended to showcase acts that were not yet big--many on their way up and many who would probably rise no higher. The format of "I'm Much Obliged" is a bit different from most, though it is essentially a musical showcase.

The film begins with a newspaper columnist, 'Mr. Inquisitive' (George Dobbs) randomly calling people and asking them what they wanted best to do. Not surprisingly, all the people ended up singing!! But because people are talking about their fantasies, the numbers are set on the range or in South America or other places--all which look like they are in a sound stage (particularly the South American dance scene). It's all reasonably pleasant but undistinguished--the sort of thing many younger folks today would find pretty dull, though technically, for the time, they are pretty good. Overall, mildly entertaining but little to make it a must-see, that's for sure.
