Larry Clinton and His Orchestra (1938)

*** (out of 4)

Larry Clinton might be forgotten today but apparently he was pretty big back in his day, which is why I always enjoy this musical shorts when they pop up on Turner Classic Movies as it's a nice little history lesson. 'College Humor', 'Stop and Reconsider' and 'Military Madcap' are the three numbers performed by Clinton and his orchestra. Carol Bruce joins the band for a couple songs including the first one 'College Humor', which is a mildly entertaining one in a campy sort of way. The lyrics are quite silly but they're simple enough to be enjoyable. Carol's voice certainly mixes in well with the bad and she's really delightful with her constant smile and dancing. Clinton's music wasn't the greatest I've heard through these old shorts as he isn't quite in the same league as someone like Vincent Lopez.
