Johnny Has 'Em Jumpin' (For Awhile, Anyway)
18 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Johnny Green is asked to put some life into this resort area in the Blue Ridge mountains. (We see a bunch of people asleep on the porch.)

Johnny honors the request by the one woman who is awake, and goes inside and starts banging away on the piano keys, playing some very cool ragtime music. Within seconds, an entire band is right outside the front door! Where did they come from? A guy is tooting away on the sax, clarinet, the drummer is hot....spectators all gather around (yeah, it's a little unrealistic) and now the place is jumping!

Unfortunately, that doesn't last long. Johnny is asked to play some of his own compositions and now the music slows down, we get a female vocalist who is crooning some slow, boring number. However, she doesn't go on long, either, and the rest of the time the music changes direction a number of times and you get everything from ballads, to country songs, to tap dances, big-band sound. One thing stays constant: it's dated. They haven't played this kind of music in many decades, so a lot of it sounds "corny" now.

Johnny Green had a good career, writing a number of songs, some of which began jazz standards. He conducted orchestras and did all kinds of things in the music world. He was a pretty smart guy, too, being admitted into Harvard at the age of 15!

This short feature was part of the Errol Flynn movie, "Captain Blood," DVD.
