musical phone commercial kitsch!
12 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes, the lady of the house is obsessed with co-ordinating telephones for every room so this must be a commercial in disguise! Directed by Gower Champion (he of the dancing duo) it really is an odd entry into musical shorts. Virginia Gibson (Mary) sings and dances a bit while husband Ward Ellis (Jeff) has to write one final song before they go on honeymoon.

Of course the inspiration for the song is ... the telephone and the rotary dial! Rather naff and cute and extremely kitsch, this short also has a camp angel called Wilbur who doesn't seem to do a great deal expect perch on the roof and throw down some fairy dust ...
