The Gypsies Might Like It

Rambling 'Round Radio Row #6 (1933)

** (out of 4)

A group of gypsies are sitting outside their home when a radio salesman (Ted Pearson) comes up to them hoping to sell a radio. The gypsies aren't interested until he turns it on and let's them hear some of the great music out there. The Pickens Sisters, Paul Whiteman's New Rhythm Boys, Tito Guizar and Frank Hazard are just some of the musical and comic talents on display here. The nine-minute short is about average with the rest in the series as the music is decent but nothing great. The attempted bits of comedy are mildly amusing but nothing more. As with some of the earlier films, this here remains mostly a curio for those wanting to see old-time music being performed by those most have long forgotten (if they were ever known). On that level this short is interesting but I doubt it's going to appeal to very many.
