Storyline

This short begins with dialogue between Georgie Price and the film's director on the Vitaphone set. Georgie is reluctant to make the short because working on a film set makes him nervous - there's no audience and too much distraction. Frank provides him with an audience in the form of the all-male crew. Georgie then asks the crew what song he should perform, and one of them yells out, "Give Me Your Hand, Madam." To which Georgie replies, "I knew I shouldn't have worn a red tie today!" (A reference to the common practice at the time of gay men wearing red ties to signal their intentions.) Georgie then sings two songs to close out the short. Written by Anonymous

Newbie to World of Shorts
18 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Normally I would have changed channels after seeing a movie on TCM, but glad I didn't. Let me add here that I love old movies and have seen some great classics recently that I had heard about but never took the time to seek them out. I regularly check the programming on TCM so that I can see these great old films. Anyway,I have actually never seen shorts and was pleasantly surprised. All the ones they showed were good, but Georgie Price caught my eye..his look, his voice...everything about him. I truly enjoyed this short and wish TCM would broadcast more. Too bad there aren't more stations such as TCM...this is great stuff! Thanks for introducing me to Georgie!!!
