Jimmy Dorsey and His Orchestra (1938)

*** (out of 4)

Warner short has (as the title says) Jimmy Dorsey and his orchestra playing five songs, which are Beebe, Parade of the Milk Bottle Caps, It's the Dreamer in Me, I Like You in Technicolor and Dusk in Upper Sandusky. If you've seen any of the Dorsey shorts then you should know what to expect and for one thing that's great music. The music style is certainly something we don't see too much today but that's one of the reasons this type of short and Turner Classic Movies are so important. Not only is it a short but it's also a look at a part of history. Dorsey is at the top of his game and really delivers on the music with It's the Dreamer in Me really stealing the show. Bob Eberly does the vocals on it and packs a nice little punch.
