Voice of Hollywood pleased this fan of the silent "Our Gang"
5 July 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

We begin with Don Alvarado at the STAR radio station introducing various stars walking to the microphone outside of presumably a premiere. Among them: John Boles, Betty Compson, Bebe Daniels, Louise Fazenda, Ruth Roland, and Tom Mix without his horse Tony who's back in Peru, Indiana. Then Alvarado gets a fan letter requesting to see Original Our Gang members Mary and Mickey. They appear-16-year-old Mickey Daniels and 15-year-old Mary Kornman-ready to "fight" over who goes on first as we hear sound effects while camera cuts to Alverado. Back to them, Mary goes first with her adequate tap dancing (part of this is filmed with her body and head with her feet off-screen). When Mickey starts to sing, he's told by Don they're out of time as they leave peacefully. Finally, Lupe Velez sings a song in Spanish from her then-current picture Cuban Love Song. This was a pretty entertaining short that must of pleased some moviegoers who were nostalgic for the old "Our Gang" shorts they saw when they were Mickey and Mary's age. I myself just discovered their episodes on YouTube and was pleased to see them in all their adolescent glory. This short, Voice of Hollywood, I also saw on YouTube as linked from Matinée at the Bijou. Worth a look for other old film buffs out there.
