Storyline

With Tschaikowsky's music on the sound track, this parody of long-hair, temperamental orchestra conductors and concert pianists is a long string of sight gags. The pianist has a new hair-do in every scene he is in, all designed to help him see the piano. One fat musician nonchalantly wanders in in the midst of the concert, takes off his hat, coat, muffler and gloves, unpacks his instrument, a triangle, hits one note, repacks, puts on his gloves, muffler, coat and hat, and goes home. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Nether Fish Nor Fowl Nor Good Red Meat -- But Very Good Nonetheless
26 August 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Frank Tashlin was one of the few cartoon directors to make a full transition to live action features -- the other best known one was Gregory LaCava -- but his cartoons were exceedingly realistic in character, gag structure and camera placement, while his live action movies were cartoonish -- think of SON OF PALEFACE or his work with Jerry Lewis.

For the moment he was at Columbia whither he had been brought by offers of greater control. There he fought, made the classic THE FOX AND THE GRAPES, a few others, including this fine movie, and then went back to Warners, then onward.

This is a fine cartoon about the problems a conductor suffers while conducting the title piece. All the characters are animals and the gags are beautifully done. If you're lucky enough to get the chance to see this in a Technicolor print as I was, don't miss it.
