The Star Reporter in Hollywood with the screen test of Dorothy Lamour was a fascinating find on YouTube
11 July 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

While this isn't the exact short in The Star Reporter in Hollywood series that I'm reviewing, it will have to do since it's the only one listed on IMDb. In this one, Ted Husing showcases 9-year-old musical prodigy Bennie Bartlett as he plays his trumpet and sings a song he wrote himself. Then Dorothy Lamour, who's from New Orleans in my home state of Louisiana, sings "Love Is Like a Cigarette" which is a cynical take on romance and perhaps because of the "cigarette" line wouldn't pass muster today. While a Joie Rardin is listed in the credits, I didn't see anyone by that name in the copy I watched on YouTube. Perhaps she was cut out of the print I saw. Finally, we watch dancing partners Vera Marshe and Louis Da Pron tap dancing up a storm before the short ends. Pretty entertaining especially when Lamour performs her number in a Paramount screen test just before her first movie there called Jungle Princess. No great shakes but worth a look for film buffs.
