Musical short celebrating the big band era...
25 August 2010 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A strident and bouncy BETTY HUTTON does an energetic job on "Mose and Me" (written by Louis Armstrong), practically knocking over some of the male singers who join her for the chorus. Interesting to see this '38 image of Betty who obviously knew how to belt out a song with Vincent Lopez and His Orchestra.

Best of the lot: Woody Herman doing a nice singing job with his orchestra in the background, on "Carolina in the Morning." Other than that, the other shorts were hardly memorable, even the one featuring Jimmy Dorsey and Orchestra. David Rubinoff does a violin solo that is not especially intriguing and is the number chosen to end the show.

Summing up: Nothing special about this one.
