To say that this film contains "pet cruelty" is absurd.
15 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film. To say that it contains "pet cruelty" is absolutely ridiculous. A man (presumably a dog trainer) is guiding his dog through a routine of tricks. For the most part, the man is relatively gentle with the dog. At other times, he is simply being playful, but definitely not cruel. The segment is actually pretty funny. Overall, the film is very important as a document of the legendary Mound City Blue Blowers. Aside from their unique instrumentation, one of the band's founders, Red McKenzie, played a pivotal role in the promotion of Chicago jazz musicians, particularly those associated with the Austin High School Gang.
