Storyline

One of the longer Vitaphone shorts but needed to show off all the kid-acts that Vitaphone claimed to have gathered from all corners of the United States. They gathered them all in a hotel-lobby setting, and the kids put on a musical revue show. They sing, dance, act, play musical instruments, perform out-dated vaudeville skits and stretch it out for 22 minutes. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Awful.
16 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1920s and 30s, various studios tried creating their own versions of the Our Gang comedies--and most of them were pretty bad. This 1938 film appears to be a knock-off of the later Our Gang comedies--the ones that weren't nearly as funny and relied too much on kid talent shows. In fact, with "Toyland Casino" they don't even have a plot--just act after act singing and dancing. While this sounds pretty bad because of the lack of plot, it's worse because the kids are all a bunch of no-talents. It's no surprise that none of these kids went on to have big careers in Hollywood, as their singing was generally painful to hear. In fact, that is THE problem--the film isn't entertaining and is just painful from start to finish--sort of like if you are forced to attend some elementary school pageant where your kids aren't even performing! Just awful.
