Simle and unadorned
24 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am currently sitting here watching a DVD collection of Vitaphone musical shorts. Of all the ones I've seen so far, this is one of the simplest and least adorned. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as most of the shorts feature crazy sets and costumes--sometimes they were great, sometimes they were just bizarre. You get none of this with "Ben Pollack & His Orchestra"--none. Instead, it's just the orchestra playing and a singer singing and some nice dancing reminiscent of Astaire & Rogers--nothing super-exciting but also nothing offensive. I guess it's nice to have one that is just singing and dancing and not distracted by sets, silly costumes and the like.
