Musical Merry-Go-Round #5 has Frankie Carle and His Orchestra...
21 November 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better Musical-Merry-Go Round shorts produced by MGM and featuring Martin Bloch introducing various bands and their best numbers.

#5 features Martin introducing nimble pianist and composer/orchestra leader Frankie Carle opening with "Sweet and Lovely," with Carle at the piano and the orchestra behind him.

We meet his daughter, Marjorie Hughes, singing the ballad, and explaining to Bloch that she grew up in a musical household and sang with the band for a couple of years. Carle is featured again on a number called "Sleepy Time Gal" with some male singers.

Marjorie sings an original Carle composition, "Oh, What It Seemed To Be" and then the short concludes with Carle's nimble fingered piano version of his own song, "Sunrise Boogie." Well done and one of the most enjoyable musical shorts I've seen in a long time.
