Storyline

Freddie Rich wordlessly conducts his orchestra. They start with an up-tempo "China Boy," with a clarinet and trumpet solo. Then Vera Van sings "I Wanna Be Loved" as a ballad as she sits at her dressing table. Mirrors add to the mood. Two maids help her don an evening gown as she sings. In the next scene, she's with the orchestra, joining the Eton Boys to sing "Little Grass Shack." Halfway through the number, the scene switches to the beach, and she's wearing a grass skirt in place of her gown. The Eton Boys continue with "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans," Vera returns to sing "Chlo-e," and the orchestra finishes with "Mardi Gras." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mirrors (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice Warner short once again showcases a popular musician back in the day. This time we get to see Freddie Rich and His Orchestra as they do some popular songs including "China Boy", "I Wanna Be Loved", "Mardi Gras" and "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans". As was the norm for these Musicals, the production values are quite low as we're usually just left in a small space where the music does all the talking but this is perfectly acceptable as long as the music is good. What we get here is pretty good, although I wouldn't list it as my favorite from these type of shorts. I think the highlight of the film has to belong to Vera Van singing "I Wanna Be Loved". She also does "Chlo-e (Song of the Swamp)" and handles it well. Rich and his group are pretty good as well but I wouldn't put them among the best these Warner shorts have to offer.
