In a nightclub setting, pianist Eddy Duchin and his orchestra play several popular tunes of the day. Sylvia Froos joins them for two songs. The novelty skating team of Earl, Jack, and Betty also perform. And the entire nightclub staff, including the orchestra, wears roller skates! Written by

I just got a hold of a huge mega-set consisting of 11 hours worth of Vitaphone musical shorts! Wow. The first on disk 3 features Eddy Duchin and his orchestra. Compared to the other shorts in the series, it compares very well--with nice music that is still enjoyable today. During the course of the short, three or four songs are performed and the most famous of which was their version of "We're In the Money". There are lots of wild costumes (including spinning umbrella-like props) but what took me by surprise was the final number that featured Earl, Jack, and Betty--the most insanely talented group of roller skaters I've ever seen. You just have to see them to believe their dance number. All in all, a lot of fun and one that I wouldn't mind seeing again.
