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

Interesting music video
10 July 2008 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting music video from 1936. Good music and lively dancing. The dancing is actually excellent as my feet were hurting when I was watching the short clip because their style looks very painful. This was made 70+ years ago and most, if not all, of the people in it have to be dead by now. Watch it with that in mind too. Just sit back and see how this kind of entertainment was offered to everyone. It probably played along with newsreels during the days before TV. They just don't have the big bands or the swing bands like they used to. This was just a few years before WWII so the innocence of America is on the surface. I doubt many or any, will look this short clip up on this site. I just wanted to leave something of my opinion for anyone who does.
