Storyline

This short subject features Richard Arlen as host as well as "The Great Arlen," a magician. The Great Arlen attempts to conjure up the King of Hearts, but initially only comes up with a fake who reveals himself as Cantdu the Magician. The Great Arlen ties up Cantdu and conjures up the "real" King of Hearts, Clark Gable. Then he makes actress Frances Dee appear, followed by Tallulah Bankhead, who sings a song. Finally "Admiral" Buster Keaton and his "second in command" Lew Cody show up aboard Keaton's land cruiser. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

The Keaton segment of this promotional short was shown on the "Industrial Strength Keaton" DVD collection
27 July 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just watched an extant of this promotional short featuring Buster Keaton and Lew Cody on the "Industrial Strength Keaton" DVD collection. It features them on a bus with Keaton dressed in an admiral outfit and Cody in a boat captain's uniform. Then they get off and an assistant gets in the fun as Buster asks about some fish and water! That ends their segment and the short as shown on the DVD I just mentioned. No great shakes but it's fascinating to see The Great Stone Face in something other than his classic silent films and that while his career seemed to be in a decline in popularity at this time that he still managed to find some work. So on that note, Hollywood on Parade No. A-6 is worth a look.
