A personally beautiful Find!
8 December 2008 | by (Henderson, Nv. USA) – See all my reviews

I have what I consider to be a personal connection with Thelma White, who passed away in 2005, having had contact with one of her distant cousins, and Harry Preston, co-author of her biography "THELMA WHO?", I'm only sorry she's passed away, and I can't get in touch with her. However much detail I have on her life and career, I've never seen her on film in any other than "REEFER MADNESS", (arguably one of the worst films of all time!) So I don't know how good an actress she was, but what a pleasant surprise to find HOT SANDS on late-night TCM! Although it's a comedic spoof short, she's cute, perky, and not at all too bad in those few minutes! I truly hope to see more of her from the TCM vaults, and those 10 minutes of lame comedy will remain in my treasured collection! The film itself is typical of the Vitaphone shorts of the era, rather vapid with its paper-thin plot, but most enjoyable on the whole!
