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

I remember seeing, and liking, Jack Buhanan in the movie As Long As They're Happy and so was much looking forward to this Vitaphone Varieties short. Jack introduces this brief short by telling the audience that one of the members of the Glee Quartet is indisposed and he will be taking the regular member's place even though he has not had a chance to rehearse with the Quartet. Although he assures the audience that nothing will go wrong, he asks the audience for their understanding. With this set-up, of course everything will go wrong as Jack is completely unfamiliar with the Quartet's routine - he is completely out of sync with the group's musical numbers. Not only that but he loses his shoes and then his cuffs. The two songs they perform are just not that interesting. And the final "joke" with the overweight young woman was just not funny. While I'm glad I saw this and may watch it again (it's only about seven minutes), it was a bit of a disappointment.
