Stupid narrator!
23 June 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When you see Artie Shaw in this film, it's hard to imagine that this ordinary looking guy would marry eight times--and to such women as Lana Turner and Ava Gardner! What they saw in him apparently was fleeting--and vice-versa.

This film is less a typical musical short and more like an educational film. It consists of a narrator describing the music, composition and style of a big band. It's really sad, as just hearing the Artie Shaw Orchestra would have been nice--but instead the narration makes it pretty distracting. In addition, you hear a singer (Helen Forrest)--and fortunately the narration ends as she begins to sing. But still, the narration makes the film a bit of an annoyance.
