Seasoned Greetings is another rarity that I enjoyed on the Gold Diggers of 1933 DVD
10 January 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this on the Gold Diggers of 1933 DVD. It stars one Lita Grey Chaplin who I just found out on this site was indeed once married to the legendary movie comic. She stars as a greeting card proprietor who comes up with musical cards-something that's in vogue today-to spice up her business. Many of the songs are sung by her including "I've Got to Sing a Torch Song" which is in that movie I mentioned earlier. Also, we see a group called The Sizzlers singing that other song from the movie-"Pettin' in the Park" only instead of "bad boy, bad girl" it's "nice boy, nice girl" in the lyrics. Then there's a band called The Village Barn Hill Billies that must have pleasantly astounded with their sound and some of the instruments like a spoon that one of them plays on his teeth! One more point of interest is the appearance of one Sammy Davis, Jr., here just about pre-teen age at maybe 7 and pretty recognizable even at that young! He doesn't sing but does provide some amusements with his lines. Okay, so on that note, Seasoned Greetings is worth a look if you're curious enough...
