Two tour guides take visitors around Warner Bros. showing them scenes of films allegedly in the making but which actually consist of archive footage from previously released Technicolor Warner Bros. short subjects. Written by
This Warner short pretty much takes us on a tour of their studio and we get to see several of their musical shorts being put together. We go behind the scenes on GYPSY SWEETHEART, SWINGTIME IN THE MOVIES, THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD and RIDE, COWBOY RIDE. We get to see clips from the movies then we go into the studio to see the songs being recorded and matched up to the lip movement on the screen. I'm sure various other films have shown this but I still got a kick out of watching this short and seeing all the work be done. We also get clips from a film called THE Sunday ROUND UP, which is a very good one worth catching on Turner Classic Movies. Look fast for Ann Sheridan and Lauren Bacall photos. Horror fans will also notice Glenn Strange from RIDE, COWBOY, RIDE.
