The Roof Garden Revue is another Vitaphone short I enjoyed
30 November 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Most of the Vitaphone shorts on The Jazz Singer DVD had just one act that sang and/or told jokes. But this one had several with many dances and songs. Among them is Lyda Roberti, the duo of Baily & Barnum (not their real last names, I'm sure), and a last dancing act of a bevy of women doing some kind of caterpillar interlocking movement. Okay, since this review is supposed to have ten lines in order for it to be submitted, I'll just say that I've enjoyed most of these shorts including this one. They've really opened my eyes in telling me how many entertainers were being filmed during this early talkie era. Really, all I'll say now is The Roof Garden Revue is recommended.
