No real plot and very amateurly made, but still quite interesting for film historians
3 May 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This was one of a string of short films made by Paramount Studios that featured variety acts and supposedly behind the scenes looks of their stars. The problem is that today, these films seem very dated and the films themselves are very crudely made. There isn't even a semblance of a plot--just one cameo or song after another. Some of the notables appearing included Ben Turpin (who takes an AMAZING fall at the end of the film), Rudy Vallee, Polly Moran and Ted Healy and His Stooges (i.e., the Three Stooges).

None of this was really any good, but it was interesting to see how strange the chemistry was between Healy and the Three Stooges. Instead of Moe slapping the others around, it was Healy and the three guys looked out of place with the no-talent Healy. I've seen Healy with the Stooges in several other early films and found that he was pretty obnoxious and unlikable--something biographies of the Stooges say was much like the real-life Healy!! For film historians and lovers of the obscure, this is a highly recommended film. For most others, it will probably be a chore to complete.
