(at around 43 mins) The drummer, while attempting to twirl his drumsticks in a burst of showmanship, drops one of them. He leans over to pick it up from the floor. Meanwhile, his drumming continues without hesitation on the soundtrack. See more »
This is a good musical short that I caught just in time and recorded from Turner Classic Movies. This great Big Band short is rarely seen, but when seen you'll watch it over and over. 10 mins long but its very full. Great Band, Great Female Singers. Nan Wynn is what you call a Big Band Singer, she got that sweet, clear voice, and The Three Symphonettes are one of the many great girl singers of the time. This is music wihtout the nudity and cursing, that tells what love is really all about. If you can catch this short, your lucky.
