Storyline

The curtain opens and the opry house manager announces, in his high-pitched voice, that a road has washed out and the scheduled act is being replaced by local talent: no refunds, so enjoy the show. A four-man combo of banjo, guitar, comb, and percussion perform "Nobody Cares For Me" and "My Gal Sal. The comb player doubles as the singer, and the one who keeps time with whisk brooms on a suitcase does an akimbo dance. They are joined by a young woman who sings "Let Me Call You Sweetheart." An unseen audience supplies applause. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fun Vitaphone Short
3 August 2009 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Opry House, The (1929)

*** (out of 4)

Early Vitaphone short shouldn't be confused with the Mickey Mouse short of the same name and released the same year. This 9-minute musical is actually one of the best of its type as we get a few short songs and a closing dance number. Red McKenzie sings "I Ain't Got Nobody Much (and Nobody Cares for Me)" and clearly steals with film with a unique voice and some great playing by his band. The two other songs are quite as classic but they're still a pleasure to listen to.

If interested you can catch this on Turner Classic Movies from time to time.
