Charming little musical
10 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Two points of interest in this 1933 Vitaphone short - headline star is Lita Grey Chaplin, second wife of Charlie, who is a rather heavy-set and moonfaced girl with an average voice; she has most of the numbers in this short. The more interesting thing about Seasoned Greetings is the little black boy who features in the closing vignette - a 7 year old Sammy Davis Jr, looking immediately recognizable and stealing the film.

Plot-wise this short fits in the depression with two greeting card stores going head to head - Lita coming up with first talking cards, then something even more appealing to the kids. Available in a lovely print with sharp visuals and sound, this is a vintage extra on the DVD of Gold Diggers of 1933.
