Pleasant Vitaphone musical short with Larry Clinton's orchestra...
This is a nicely done, brisk short from Warner Bros. and their Vitaphone series of shorts featuring pop band leaders of the '30s and '40s.
LARRY CLINTON and his orchestra play some popular hits while their lead singers do a good job on a couple of oldies.
Sharp-eyed as I am, I noted a very young GOWER CHAMPION billed as "Gower and Jeanne" in what must be one of his earliest appearances on film before he teamed with Marge Champion for big-time films, for a dance rendition of "Dancing in the Dark."
Other tunes include "Chant of the Jungle," "You Took Advantage of Me," "Powerhouse" and "Get Happy." One of the lead singers was BEA WAIN, a name I haven't heard in years. This is the kind of short played in theaters during the era of double features.
