Storyline

A cute gal carrying a title card announces each of four acts. The six-member Honey family - three women and three men - perform acrobatics. Reece and Dunn sing a ballad in harmony with piano accompaniment. The Stepping Stars - four women and a man - do a tap dance on stairs that are a giant xylophone. The short concludes with the headliner, Herb Williams, a comedian who first has a contretemps with the orchestra conductor, then, while promising to do a solo standing on his head, engages a trick piano. That's entertainment. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Vaudeville (1934)

** (out of 4)

This Vitaphone short offers pretty much what you'd expect with a title like VAUDEVILLE as we get several acts doing their stuff be it with music or tricks. Herb Williams, Les Reis, Buster Shaver, The Honey Family, The Three Queens, Jack Pepper and His Society Pets and The Stepping Stars are just a few of the folks featured in this musical. I'm sure most of these names won't be familiar to very many people watching this short but that's the great thing about all these Vitaphone shorts and that's the fact that they can introduce you to music and acts. I'm sure many of these were probably forgotten about before the decade was over but there's always a refreshing feeling when you watch them today. That's not to say the film is a winner because it isn't. The cheap quality certainly shows during many of the numbers but at 9-minutes you really can't complain too much.
