Breakin' It Down (1946)
- Summaries (1)
Del Courtney and Orchesta leads off with "Symphony Moderne" and concludes with "Second Hugarian Rhapsody" and then shows their versatility by providing the music while The Town Criers sing "Just a-Sittin' and a-Rockin'"; Dottie Dotson does double duty on "Knock Me a Kiss" and "Do You Believe in Loving, Honey", and Universal dance director Louis Da Pron tap-dances to Stephen Foster's "Swanee River." This carried a production number of 1311, which Universal, either short of imagination or lost the count number, used the same number again on a 1955 short with the Ink Spots and the Barry Sisters. For those, if any, who track such, make this 1311-1946 and the other one 1311-1955. Warners recycled footage in their Shorts and Universal went one better by recycling footage and numbers. Columbia would just reissue the original and put a different number on it. Rhyme or reason was never a big issue in Hollywood. RKO used five-digit numbers such as 63546, which quickly blows the theory that production numbers represented films-released-in-sequence by a studio.
