Franklyn Baur, Lewis James, Frank Black, Wilfred Glenn and Elliott Shaw make up The Revelers who perform three songs in this early Vitaphone short. "Mine," "No Foolin'," and "Dinah" are the three songs performed and ones interest in this type of film will certainly determine your entertainment value. THE REVELERS wouldn't make another appearance in a film for another decade but for the most part I found this short to be entertaining enough. Of the songs performed I'd say "Dinah" was the best and most catchy, although I still wouldn't go searching for a copy of it to carry with me. The setting is pretty simple as most of these shorts were as the five men are just sitting around the first few seconds before they then take center stage to perform the music. It appears that all five are at least comfortable in front of the camera, although the man on the right appears to be smiling way too much. Fans of these early Vitaphone shorts should enjoy this.
