The best dog-actors of the Hollywood Golden Years
2 November 2001 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this short film in film school. I can say that I have never laughed so hard in all my life. The shear lunacy of what those dogs do in this film, not only acting and dressing like humans but satirizing the whole musical genre is brilliant. I highly recommend this rarely seen film to anyone who wants a laugh. However, dog lovers have to have an open mind as in the thirties, I doubt there were labour laws for the fair treatment of animals.
