Storyline

Early Vitaphone-Warner Bros. short film introduced as part of the Vitaphone Varieties series featuring Jack Buchanan who announces to the audience that he will be replacing a member of the Glee Quartet though he has had little time to rehearse. He doesn't know the lyrics, any of the coordinated movements and is generally out of sync with the others to the point of losing his shoes. Written by garykmcd

Not one of Vitaphone's finer moments
31 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this Vitaphone short, Jack Buchanan plays the fourth member of the Glee Quartet. However, unlike the very well synchronized other three, Buchanan seems to have no idea what he's doing and is never in sync with their movements. In the process he loses his shoes, his cuffs and his crib notes. It's all supposed to be quite funny--though the idea isn't enough to sustain the film. Then they are joined by some ladies and the short ends on a fat joke.

All in all, this is a one joke short--and the joke itself isn't great and it falls flat well before the film ends. Not super-funny and not especially entertaining. I guess you can't win 'em all.
