Let's Dance (1936)

** (out of 4)

MGM short has Pete Smith narrating the action as we get to learn how to do a few dances. Dave Gould, a famous choreographer of the era, explains how to do various dances including ballroom, tap, two-time, acrobatic and a few others. Gould is probably best remembered for films such as THE GAY Divorcée and Broadway MELODY OF 1936 and it's doubtful he'll gain any new fans based solely on this short. The biggest problem is that the "documentary" never teaches us anything and in fact, it comes off as being rather dumb. Smith's narration is pretty good even though he hasn't yet become that Pete Smith we all know and love. The dance sequences really aren't anything special as we only see them briefly and don't learn anything about them. The final joke with the overweight women trying to dance themselves skinny might offend some.
