This particular Mack Sennett short is in bad need of preservation. As it is a musical short designed to feature the singing talents of Donald Novis you won't get too much listening pleasure from it. The rather thin plot of this short has Novis accompanied by Oirish mother demanding and getting an audition from a pair of radio producers. Novis gets to sing Sylvia and Charmaine for his audition.Novis was a popular radio tenor in the 30s, did a few feature films and also was on Broadway. In Jumbo, Rodgers&Hart wrote The Most Beautiful Girl In The World which he introduced. Novis deserves better than a short with fading sound. You can catch this on YouTube at the moment.
