Storyline

Duval's Fashion House is struggling, Mr. Duval believes in large part because of his playboy son, Jack, not pulling his weight in the business. Instead, Jack likes to gamble and cavort with his chorus girl girlfriend, Betty. If their latest fashion show doesn't generate enough income, they may go out of business. Jack believes the latest designs are sure fire winners, but in Jack telling her of their problems, Betty, who believes fashion shows are outdated, gives him the idea to jazz up their show by adding dancing and music. With Jack as emcee and Betty as one of the dancing and singing models, will the musical revue styled show do the job? Written by Huggo

Fashion's Mirror (1930)

** (out of 4)

Warner/Vitaphone musical about a man (Jack Thompson) who decides to help his father's store, which is falling apart, by having a fashion show with a famous model (Barbara Newberry) from Paris. It would be interesting to know how many of these shorts were released on a weekly basis but film buffs today can at least be happy to know that they're being released on MOD programs as well as being shown on Turner Classic Movies. This one here certainly isn't among the best out there so it will only be recommended to those such as myself who needs to see everything ever released from Warner's New York studios. I thought Thompson had some good energy that came across on the screen and there's no question that Newberry was easy on the eyes but neither one were able to save this film. It's clear that not too much thought went into the screenplay as it really offers us nothing new and instead it's obvious that the only goal was to get a couple songs on the screen and of course show off a few legs. None of the dance sequences were overly impressive and the songs, all written around clothes, are rather lame. You Can Tell a Lady by the Way She Wears Her clothes certainly isn't going to make it into the music Hall of Fame.
