Storyline

An "extra" shown in two parts at the movie theater, before and after a feature: part one gives the clues to six words in a crossword puzzle, part two gives the answers. In addition to the visual clues, which are clips of a party, an Asian country, a European city, table games, winter, and bullfighting, there are montages of street scenes and spinning objects. A simple cartoon character, Mr. Rebus, walks the audience through the clues, and title cards encourage the participation of the theatergoers. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Little Theater Fun
21 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An "extra" shown in two parts at the movie theater, before and after a feature: part one gives the clues to six words in a crossword puzzle, and part two has the solution.

I have to give a shout-out to Emil Jannings, whose name appears on a marquee in this film for the movie "Variety". This has nothing to do with the plot, but I thought it was nice of Jannings to find a place in a film like this.

While the concept is simple, this film adds a little bit of fun and interaction to the theater experience. I could use a bit more of that at the theater. And it is more colorful than a simple crossword, as they (Paul Leni and whomever else) mixed animation, photos and video into a nice collage.

Lastly, I have to give the film credit for teaching me that "jazzband" is one word and not two. A little weird, but if Paul Leni says so...
