Storyline

In this short, various acts perform musical numbers before an audience in a theater. One of these acts is a tap dancer whose shoes have extensions on them that allow him to balance on the ends as one might use stilts. In the finale, a dog in the audience performs tricks. The title refers to the curfew in the town. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Sort of like Vaudeville meets the Beverly Hillbillies

The style of this Vitaphone short is a bit different--and it works pretty well. Instead of one act or a couple acts, the short is like a variety show being held in very small Southern town America. The acts are VERY unconventional but mostly unique and enjoyable. The only ones that left me flat was that odd female trio that sang a song about a guy murdering the sheriff...and with almost zero emotion.

As for the rest, they consist of an amazing guy wearing extremely elongated shoes. He tapdances with them but also can stand up on end like they are stilts! It's odd but incredible! Next, there are some other cool bizarro acts such as the cute dog act and the quartet with one of the men playing the brushes on top of a suitcase and another does a horn imitation. Strange...but almost all very enjoyable. And, for a Vitaphone short, the sets and production values were very nice.
