Vincent Lopez and His Orchestra (1939)

*** (out of 4)

Warner Bros. short, if you think about it, is just an early "music video", which features the popular Lopez doing various numbers with his band. Also on hand,a nd most interesting to films buffs, is the 18-year-old Betty Hutton who gets to do some jitterbug singing. I've seen three or four shorts to feature Lopez and he's certainly becoming one of my favorite musicians from this period. Or, at least his band are as they are constantly moving, swinging and just having a good time. The music is very speedy and sounds terrific and will have your shaking your foot in entertainment. Hutton, in one of her first roles, is also excellent here as she sits in on three songs and really delivers the goods. That husky voice packs a great punch when mixed with Lopez's music.
