Storyline

This edition of Screen Snapshots (production number 3851) has more of a vaudeville flavor as opposed to Ralph Staub's usual candid-camera at home with the stars offerings. Ken Murray, assisted by the Brewer Twins, is the MC, while the Andrews Sisters sing "In Apple Blossom Time" and the pre-Uncle Miltie Milton Berle plays his clarinet. The rest of the players, with contract-player faces belonging to 20th-Century Fox, RKO Radio, Universal and Columbia, just pass through. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Buster Keaton Billy Gilbert Milton Berle and The Andrew Sisters
10 August 2012 | by (Hollywood, California) – See all my reviews

Talk about a Hollywood party. This film, hosted by Ken Murray, happens to be one of the best in the entire Screen Snapshots series. The premise is a Keystone party hosted by Milton Berle in which all of the guests are dressed like they are from an old Mack Sennet comedy. Usually the Screen Snapshots department would dig up film from several sources to tell it's story but here the footage is all shot for this film.

Highlights include Patty, Maxine and LaVerne Andrews singing, stars swimming and eating and Billy Gilbert, Polly Moran and Berle attempting a barbershop harmony.

The big thrill is when Buster Keaton teaches the art of pie throwing. One thing leads to another and before the film ends, everyone is covered in pie.

This film was released in Super 8mm by Columbia for home movie collectors so it is easier to see than most of the other entries in the series. Perhaps one day we will see some of these wonderful short subjects make their debut on DVD. They are great viewing and should be seen by modern audiences.
