Decent Musical short from Warner has Hal Le Roy basically playing himself. Here he's a young man who takes a magical pill that turns him into a great dancer when he's discovered by Lola (Toby Wing). Soon he is recruited for an act but when he loses the pills he doesn't know what to do. If you're looking for some great, smart or funny then you're not going to find it here but for the most part this is an innocent enough short that's at least slightly entertaining. The biggest problem is that there's really nothing here that's "good" but instead everything is just decent. The songs are mildly entertaining at best and while some of Le Roy's steps are very good, there's just nothing to really show them off. The filmmaking is also decent at best but fans who enjoy these type of shorts will still want to check it out.
