A Universal short starring Daniels
17 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

This Universal short is set in a night club with Billy Daniels as the star. Daniels, with Benny Payne furnishing backup vocals as well as piano accompaniment, sings "Them There Eyes", "My Melancholy Baby" and his trademark song, "That Old Black Magic". He's done better with the latter, with "Melancholy" the best rendition. Eileen Barton also sings, and there's a dance couple. He doesn't get a credit, but serving as the club's m.c. is David Janssen. The direction is uninspired.
