Rita Rio and Her Orchestra (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Dona Drake is basically playing herself but under the role name of Rita Rio. It's hinted that not too many people gave her a shot at being famous but she proved them wrong with her singing and dancing. There's no tell how many Vitagraph shorts were made throughout the late 20's and 30's but this is another decent one from director Mack who made over a hundred shorts but his career dried up in the early 40's, which was also the same time the Vitagraph studio lost its steam. In this film Drake does a pretty good job in terms of acting and there's no doubt she has a great voice and a few nice steps.
