A Movietone Divertissement was a pretty pleasant musical short
4 December 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was the last of the Metro Movietone musical shorts presented on The Broadway Melody DVD. Tom Waring was first on the piano with his pleasant song. Then it was Johnny Marvin who was most interesting when playing his saw. Then it was musical comedy star Yvette Rugel who had the unfortunate spots on her film stock when it was presented on the DVD. Finally, it's the Happiness Boys. This was a pleasant time, mostly, to spend watching these Metro Movietone shorts. I initially wasn't going to review these shorts since I didn't know they were even listed on this site. I usually review these just after watching them but now I'm randomly reviewing these out of sequence with this last one out of the way first. So my ten line requirement is over and so is this review.
