Baby Talks is the 1st of 10 sound on disk Sunny Jim 2 reel comedy shorts. Universal released it on September 11, 1929.I had Reel 2 restored to DVD from a 1930s show at home print to check out this obscure series. Unfortunately, Reel 1 (picture only) has yet to be found.The plot: A young couple have an argument on the way to a party. A Magician played by Charles King entertains but the tricks are duplicated/exposed by Sunny Jim.From an early talkie perspective, I found it interesting to see the editing of actual sound film being matched mid sentence with sped up dubbed silent footage.Both head and end titles use baby sounds. The dancing music cues used are "I'm Sitting on Top of the World" and "Kansas City Kitty".Five year old Mckeen has some funny moments, but this was to be his only sound series. He died at the age of 8 on April 2, 1933 in Los Angeles from Blood Poisoning.
