This was another Metro Movietone Revue I rather enjoyed
4 December 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

This was another Metro Movietone Revue musical short among a series of them I watched on The Broadway Melody DVD. Harry Rose is once again the host who intros The Locust Sisters, a pleasant singing group. Then there's singer Johnny Marvin on his ukulele, also pleasant. Then Rose intros Rosemarie Sinnott, a tall tap dancer whose only appearance this was. She's quite good and oh, what legs! Then Rose sings a song that appears to segue into "Mammy", Al Jolson's famous number. Finally, there's George Dewey Washington, a baritone African-American performer who I previously watched in the short Ol' King Cotton. Quite a warbler, he was! So on that note, I rather enjoyed this Metro Movietone Revue.
