Storyline

Harry Reser leading his small orchestra, who are dressed in Eskimo attire, are the centerpiece of a musical comedy revue with an Eskimo theme. After a few numbers by Reser and the orchestra, Lynn Gordon, The Modernaires and The Three Yates Sisters, backed by Reser and the orchestra, take center stage for the number "You Hit the Spot". Then Reser ends the program with his banjo solo, once again backed by the orchestra. Written by Huggo

Harry Reser & His Eskimos (1936)

*** (out of 4)

If you watch Turner Classic Movies enough then you know that various Warner/Vitaphone shorts usually show up at least twice a week. These one-reelers usually lasted under ten-minutes and today are a great reminder of what music use to be liked back in the day. If you've seen enough of these things you know that the studio was usually pretty good coming up with fresh ideas for stories and this one here is certainly original as Harry Reser and his band are inside an igloo where the band members are dressed up as Eskimos. 'You Hit the Spot' is without question the highlight of the short as we get Reser doing a terrific number but there's also The Modernaires doing the vocals and The Three Yates Sisters doing a very good tap dance. Another great number is 'Tiger Rag' which we hear at the very end. All the numbers performed are of a very high quality and even if you're not familiar with this type of music it's certainly good enough to where your feet should be wanting to dance along. The production values are actually quite high here as it seems like the studio spent a few extra dollars trying to make everything look as good as they could.
