Ray Mayer & Edith Evans are pretty entertaining in the short, When East Meets West
29 November 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was another Vitaphone musical short I watched on The Jazz Singer DVD. It starred the husband-and-wife duo of Ray Mayer & Edith Evans. He is dressed in a cowboy outfit at the piano and sings the first song-a ditty about a Ford car named Lizzy. His wife then appears to sing while hubby provides accompaniment. It goes back-and-forth like that for awhile before the end. This was another of these vintage early talkie shorts I highly enjoyed. Once again, I need to stretch to 10 lines for this review to be submitted so I'll just say that I'm such a movie and musical buff that I'm willing to see and listen to almost anything at least once. So on that note, I'm now going to view another one...
