Storyline

A producer, Dave Appolon, is on the set of his newest film, "Dark Eyes," where he thinks he has to do everything: he hires and fires, he plays the lover and the mandolin in a gypsy scene, he dances the male lead in a Spanish dance on another sound stage, he puts a singer under contract and listens to her sing, he calls for a ballet dancer who does a tap solo, and then he hosts the opening of his own film: he conducts the band, welcomes a couple who dance "Romeo and Juliet," and dances himself with new talent after giving her a big smooch.

Why haven't I heard of him before?
8 November 2004 | by (Connecticut, USA) – See all my reviews

Just saw this on TCM and was very impressed. Apollon was multi talented. He played the mandolin flawlessly. I am a longtime bluegrass fan and don't think I've every heard anybody play that fast without a single mistake. His tap-dancing was pretty fair, too, though we didn't get to see too much of it in this one-reeler.

How do these guys not get noticed, but others with no obvious talent seem to go much further? Judging from this flick, it must have a lot to do with personality. He seems very arrogant, and I assume he was as he did not seem like much of an actor.

Thanks to Ted Turner for unearthing this and so many other interesting if not classic pictures. I can almost forgive you for the whole colorization thing.
