Phil Spitalny and His All-Girl Orchestra, the females who are all clad in white gowns, perform a few musical numbers cabaret style in front of an appreciative audience. The multi-talented orchestra members not only play musical instruments, but also sing. In one number, one of their own is featured as a tap dancer. In another number, a dueling piano duet is featured. Written by
Another nice short from Warner/Vitaphone, this one here featuring Phil Spitalny and his all-female band. One of the greatest joys of Turner Classic Movies (and now the Warner Archive) is that you can find these older gems that have been sitting in a vault for over fifty-years. The range in quality is always different but for the most part fans of older music will find a lot of joy in them and this here is the perfect example. It's doubtful too many people remember Phil Spitalny but this short gives you a chance to see what type of music people were listening to back in the day. For the most part this is an entertaining little short as Spitalny certainly knows how to perform in front of the camera and yes the added attraction of an all-female band does make you take notice since this here isn't something you see all the time. The highlight of the short is "Let's Fall in Love" and "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2".
