Making 'Em Move (1931)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Interesting "documentary/spoof" animated film has a woman taking a tour of a studio when she comes across the animation department. She decides to take a look inside just to see how the films are made. What follows I'm sure has a tad bit of reality behind it but for the most part it's just a spoof of itself as we see one character draw a head while the next draws an arm and so on. There's also a nice section showing how the music is added as well as how the camera eventually picks everything up and takes it to the theater. I'm sure this was meant to be a comedy but it never made me laugh, although this didn't take away too much entertainment.
