Silly, but Fun

While the plot is silly, this musical short is light and fun. Hal LeRoy performs some snappy tap steps and Toby Wing is awfully cute. (Even if her dumb blonde routine is tiresome.) The music is mundane, but there is one incredible dance routine involving a tuxedo-clad man on stilts.
