Katherine Hepburn jitterbugs with Leopold Stokowski
23 September 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This very late Charles Mintz-produced cartoon for Columbia -- he would go out of the business the next year -- is a standard sort for the 1930s in which movies stars are presented in a cartoon form. This is notable for the good voice work, starting with someone doing a pretty good imitation of Fanny Brice's Baby Snooks.

The caricatures range from big stars whom a viewer might easily recognize more than seventy years later, from Fred Astaire in a sailor suit (that year he and Ginger Rogers starred in FOLLOW THE FLEET) to the obscure, like Herman Bing. The sight gags are the same that were used in the beginning of the decade, like Greta Garbo's big feet and Clark Gable's jug-handle ears that flap like wings. There is almost no facial movement.

While this is never a particularly great movie, the technical side -- besides the voice work and Technicolor, it's a musical cartoon with a well-executed song running through it -- makes it pretty good.
