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.

Rambling 'Round Radio Row #2 (1932)

** (out of 4)

The second film in Vitaphone's series has a group of people coming back from an ocean voyage and of course various songs break out. Once again we're left with an interesting film when viewed today because for the most part many of the acts appearing here were probably on their way out even back in 1932. We do get a brief appearance by composer Burton Lane but director Wald doesn't spend too much time with him instead going back to those who are now forgotten. I must admit that I find most of the music in these shorts to be good but that's not the case here and especially with the young lady wearing the tie and standing by the piano. Her voice was bad enough to really make a dog bark and at first I thought this was a comic bit but it turns out it was part of the musical act. This here is certainly only recommended to those who want to see the lesser side of some of the great music out there in the day.
