Eddie Duchin & Orchestra (1933)

*** (out of 4)

When people mention Eddy Duchin it's usually in connection with his bio-pic from 1956 that had Tyrone Power playing him. It's strange that his would get a picture of his own but it's also funny because this Vitaphone short actually misspells his name in the credit. As you can tell by the title, Eddie should actually be Eddy but I guess he got the final laugh when MGM put his right name in a film. Sylvia, From Me to You, Shadow Waltz, Lullaby of the Leaves are just a few of the songs that are performed here. Like a lot of these early Vitaphone shorts, there's certainly nothing ground breaking to them and they're certainly far from classics but if you're a fan of older music then you'll probably find yourself enjoying it. Sylvia Froos, again, no major star, has a pleasant voice and I thought she was easy on the eyes so it was fun seeing her. Duchin doesn't get as much screen time as you'd expect from someone in the title but he too was fairly charming and handled his lines quite well. "The Gold Diggers' Song (We're in the Money)" closes things out and was a pretty good version of the very familiar tune.
