A Warner Brothers VITAPHONE VARIETIES Short Subject.

Lost in the HOT SANDS of Death Valley, a honeymooning couple make a strange pact with three strangers in order to survive.

Billy Wayne & Thelma White star in this incredibly silly little film which strains mightily for the few chuckles it tries to elicit. But, of course, it's a difficult task to find anything very convivial about attempted cannibalism.

******************************

Often overlooked or neglected today, the one and two-reel short subjects were useful to the Studios as important training grounds for new or burgeoning talents, both in front & behind the camera. The dynamics for creating a successful short subject was completely different from that of a feature length film, something akin to writing a topnotch short story rather than a novel. Economical to produce in terms of both budget & schedule and capable of portraying a wide range of material, short subjects were the perfect complement to the Studios' feature films.
