Not terrible...
18 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I was surprised when I saw this short included with the RKO film "Shall We Dance". Surprised because this short is from Vitaphone--a division of Warner Brothers--not RKO. I assume that since Turner Entertainment now owns practically every old film, they could combine their RKO releases with non-RKO shorts (since, after all, RKO is not known for shorts).

This short stars a bunch of folks I've never seen before--and I've seen a lot of films! It begins with a guy getting hit in the head by a golf ball and, oddly, he dreams he's in the desert with the Foreign Legion! What's more odd is that many of the scenes do not feature him (but it's HIS dream!) and there's some limp singing--and people hardly ever break into song in my dreams (and I wish they did...). Unfortunately, the songs aren't that good--and it's made all the more obvious as I'd just finished watching the Astaire-Rogers musical...with music from the Gershwins! All in all, not an especially inspired film...but at least it's free.
