Storyline

Another of the many Mentone Productions, Inc. (practically a one-man operation for Milton Schwarzwald) musical shorts filmed in New York, and made for Universal Pictures distribution, who did distribute it in spite of the source somewhere that seems to think it was distributed by MCA/Universal, an operation that didn't exist in 1936. The cast included Sybil Bowan,(as the publicity director for a transatlantic dirigible company. She invites, by mail, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Bea Lillie and Mae WEst to appear on the company's radio program. THey all decline but, since it's radio, she just imitates them. Once that is done she acts as Mistress-of-Ceremonies and introduces dancers Audrey and Wesley Catri, the Four Eton Boys and Cappy Barra's Harmonica Band.
