Pony Boy
13 July 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Here's another of the Famous Studios Screen Songs. Although it is not as good as the best of the Screen Songs from the Fleischer era -- those usually used well known performers for their recordings instead of the anonymous choruses of the Famous Studios era -- it is a well set up offering with a rat-a-tat series of gags.

Modern viewers may be offended, of course, by its use of standard Indian gags of the era. Given that the Patents Office has just removed the Washington Redskins' trademark protection, you might wish to find a more innocuous Screen Song to introduce someone to the series. I doubt if anyone is terribly offended by the observation that Maine has a lot of trees and beavers. On the other hand, the jokes aren't as well turned out in that one.

The song offered is "My Pony Boy" by Bobby Heath and Charley O'Donnell. Sixty years ago, we used to sing it on our rocking horses. I'm sure it offends someone these days.
