Wow...is she young!
23 June 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If I didn't know better, I never would have guessed that the woman starring in this Paramount short was Ethel Merman! This is because Merman didn't become a movie star until MUCH later--and, like all of us, she changed a lot. Plus, the fashions of 1930 and the mid-1940s changed immensely.

The plot of this one is pretty non-existent. Merman is taken to a very surreal looking courtroom and instead of pleading to the charge, she sings a long song. Then, when they announce that they are going to let her off with a warning, she starts singing again! The problem isn't just that there isn't much plot, but the songs just aren't very good and the acoustics are poor. It comes off as a rather cheap little film--one that doesn't really show off Merman's many talents.
