I don't think I want to be treated by THAT hospital!
This is a truly bizarre little musical short. The very popular crooner, Rudy Vallee, stars as a doctor in charge of a really screwy hospital--a hospital where they break out into song all the time and treat patients with music! It's all pretty whacked out but also rather funny at the same time--though I am pretty sure a few might be offended by the segment with the black patient (but considering many hospitals were NOT integrated at the time, it was rather progressive in spite of the use of the song "Mammy"). In this odd-ball place, they also use TV (a very, very new sort of thing for 1932)! It's just too weird but also rather endearing. Also, it's a chance to see Mae Questel--a woman most famous for providing the voices for Betty Boop and Olive Oyl! Worth a look.
