A unique show was staged every Sunday night at the famous Trocadero nightclub in Hollywood. with agents, talent scouts and studio execs attending, plus many big-name stars of the movies.

Reginald Deny was also on hand posing as a candid cameraman snapping shots of all the acts, and kidding the celebs in attendance as he gets them to pose for him. Written by

The wine list at the Trocadero Club includes the items Chertok et Fils, Quimby et Quimby, and Gene Ruggiero et Fils. These are allusions to MGM's short subject producers Jack Chertok and Fred Quimby, and film editor Gene Ruggiero. See more »
This short is one of 34 which are featured on Warner Archives Classical Musical Shorts From The Dream Factory.I am very puzzled by many of the reviews of the shorts.They don't seem to appreciate that in many instances an exhibitor would not be charged for these items which were gimme fillers.The fact that they had no or silly stories is entirely irrelevant.These films were often had one major purpose to promote the studio stars.Yes some of the films were what would now be considered racist or sexist,certainly UN pc.However you can't really project 21st century attitudes on to shorts which are now around 80 years old.If you are easily offended just turn off.These shorts are of their time and should be appreciated accordingly.
