Lacking charisma....this one just seemed pretty flat.
24 January 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Vitaphone short features diminutive bandleader Harry Wayman. His so-called 'Debutantes' were an all women orchestra and they are all dressed in identical dresses. But these ladies aren't glamour girls but talented musicians. Now I am not saying that the film is all that good. Their music is just fine...but the singing and dance routine are amazingly flat and unappealing. I think in the case of the pianist it might just be because the sound was poor, as the woman could have used a microphone. The short wasn't helped by the fact that the set was even more minimal than usual and the total effect comes off as third- rate. Not terrible but certainly towards the bottom of the Vitaphone musical shorts in quality and enjoyability.
