Down Mexico Way

A WARNER BROTHERS VITAPHONE Short Subject.

A Minnesota Swede finds himself in big trouble in Mexico when he is forced to capture a notorious bandito.

Dialect comedian El Brendel, who enlivened several films in the 1930's, finds a good outlet for his talent in OKAY, JOSÉ. The very silly plot - which includes Mexican music & dancing - allows him to give hilarious impersonations of a mustachioed outlaw and a flirtatious blonde señorita. The eye-pleasing Technicolor photography is still vivid and bright.

Often overlooked or neglected today, the one and two-reel short subjects were useful to the Studios as important training grounds for new or burgeoning talents, both in front & behind the camera. The dynamics for creating a successful short subject was completely different from that of a feature length film, something akin to writing a topnotch short story rather than a novel. Economical to produce in terms of both budget & schedule and capable of portraying a wide range of material, short subjects were the perfect complement to the Studios' feature films.
