Clinton's orchestra reminds one of a '38 version of Lawrence Welk...

The similarity in style is striking, especially when LARRY CLINTON AND HIS ORCHESTRA introduces two guest stars who turn out to be dancers, VIRGINIA MARTIN and BOB ROBINSON.

CAROL BRUCE is the girl singer who gets things started with a song duet by Carol and Larry called "College Humor"--something he wrote, not quite as wacky as anything by Kay Kyser's band but simply a corny, catchy tune. Next, another swing number called "Stop and Reconsider" while his audience takes to the dance floor for a novelty number.

Clinton takes his baton again for a final number requested by his audience and the Vitaphone short from Warner Bros. is over.
