Storyline

Basically this is a commercial for Hollywood's Lido Lounge and for MGM contract players. The Lido is a large watering hole; we visit one afternoon with an orchestra playing, all sorts of stars and would-be stars sitting at tables near the pool alongside paying customers, and bathing beauties parading and diving. The Lido's manager, Reggy Denny, introduces the stars in the audience. He's sometimes interrupted by someone who does a bit, sings a song, or otherwise entertains: most of these are novelty acts. By the end, everyone's having a swell time. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Stars lounge away at the Lido
2 July 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Starlit Days At The Lido is not only a commercial for the Lido Beach Club, but it contributes to the notion that it's always sunny in Southern California. No doubt Mr.&Mrs. Tourist visiting the movie capital just hoping to get a glimpse of as many celebrities as are shown in this 20 minute short subject from MGM.

Reginald Denny serves as host and there are some guest stars like Cliff Edwards who give us a song and Buster Crabbe who gives us a glimpse of his biceps. Some stars are dragged into this film surreptitiously with imitations from the Radio Rogues who were a comedy team of three at the time who made a few film appearances and specialized in doing imitations of radio stars. Ed Wynn and Jimmy Durante came in via the Rogues.

I wonder if the Lido is still in business.
