Historically important but dreadful.
30 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The title of this is "Gems of MGM". Well, in the gemological world, these gems MIGHT be best! With such a big and important studio, you'd think they'd be able to do better than this! This is a dry, dreadful and, occasionally, gross little short film. It consists of Marion Harris, the Brox Sisters and Bechers Kiddie Ballet doing some routines that are old fashioned and uninteresting. But, to top it off, Benny Rubin does a black-face routine--one that is not just offensive but bad. In many ways, this is like some of the Vitaphone shorts--though the Vitaphone/Warner shorts usually featured GOOD acts--this MGM one does not! It's only of interest for its historical value. As entertainment, it's pretty awful.
