This is a cobbled-together musical short subject, derived from several old shorts, and held together by a nominal tour group wandering around the Warner Brothers lot. It works all right in an odd way, including the three-strip Technicolor 'Indian Dance' shot with Busby Berkley interludes -- the silly costumes are meant to show off the brightness of the process since these shorts date from the period when Technicolor was still more of a curiosity than part of the vocabulary of the movies.

The most interesting part, for this old fan of the 'spot the star' game is to be able to finally put a face to Bess, Flowers, 'The Queen of the Extras'. She's a member of the group being shown around the lot and you can spot Bess by the grey pillbox hat she wears.
