Storyline

Coming back from a Ocean trip to New York, Loyce Whiteman, Harry Barris and Art Jarrett decide to visit composer Burton Lane, who is also aboard to rehearse a little. Saxophonists Benny Krueger and Rudy Wiedhoeft meet and joke with their instruments, also commenting on prohibition. Songstress Sylvia Froos is singing at home while reading the paper. When she reads a story about a new scandal involving another young performer, she is glad that the press will never find out about her new pyjamas, but then a reporter shows up from under her bed. Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

This didn't do much for me.
24 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I recently got a hold of the multi-disk set "Warner Brothers Big Band, Jazz & Swing Short Subject Collection". It's made up of over 11 hours of Vitaphone musical shorts. Disk 1 is a bit different in style, as it consists mostly of the "Ramblin' Round Radio Row" shorts. These mostly star Jerry Wald. Wald apparently was famous for a newspaper column on radio programs and this was parlayed into him getting the chance to produce these shorts.

In this second installment, a group of performers see each other on a cruise ship and decide to get together to sing and have a good time. This is a very thin plot for what really is just a typical Vitaphone musical short with a story line running it all together. However, this plot didn't seem all that important after a while and it came off more like a talent show than anything else. And, only at the end does Wald make an appearance.

So is it any good? Well, it's hard to say today because times have changed and so have tastes. It all seemed rather lame to me, but it's easy to feel this way almost 80 years later. In addition, some of these celebrities were well-known at the time but are all but forgotten today. I got very little out of the short and wish it had least offered a nice chance to see Kate Smith perform like the previous short in the series.
