George Hall And His Orchestra (Roy Mack, 1936) **
14 April 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This short subject (many similar efforts were made at this time to promote particular songs or, as is the case here, bands) is included on the Warners DVD of their gangster picture BULLETS OR BALLOTS (1936). Being a one-reeler, the film is quite harmless in itself – and, at least, manages to poke fun at the people involved since they're ostensibly seeking out a contract and, being broke, can't afford hotel accommodation and, so, have to make do with the theater where the audition is to be held for their sleeping quarters! The punchline is that the next morning, construction workers arrive and start tearing the place down…which suggests that the band is outmoded as the theater itself, and that they've all been taken for a ride (just as they had themselves done to the colored and, typically for this era, indolent nightwatchman when one of their number had donned a skeletal outfit to scare the boy out of his wits). All in all, however, it seems depressing to me that so many of these inconsequential fillers have survived over the years and are being allowed a new lease on life via the DVD format when many a noteworthy film (or portions from same) has been lost to the ravages of time!!
