Green's Twentieth Century Faydetts was another enjoyable Vitaphone short
30 November 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was another of these Vitaphone musical shorts made in the late 20s that's on The Jazz Singer DVD. The title group is an all female band with a woman named Nina Grey as the leader. She plays a Victor Herbert number and dedicates it to his memory. There's lots of other stuff before it's called a reel. I really enjoyed this one as I have most of the others I've seen so far. Okay, since there's supposed to be ten lines before I can submit this, I'll just say that these were quite the find for me as I like finding vintage films and recordings as a frequent hobby so this was quite the goldmine here! Really, I haven't got tired looking at these rarities yet! So on that note, Green's Twentieth Century Faydetts is worth the look.
