Rather bland two-reeler from Warner takes place at a movie studios projection room where at the start of the film a big shot is taking a look at a dancing act. From here enters a publicity guy (Eddie Foy, Jr.) who is going to take a big couple on the radio and throw them into a romantic movie but he's not aware that the couple is fighting and heading towards a divorce. From here we pretty much get a couple more musical acts as well as a couple comedy acts but the truth is that nothing really stands out here. Director Roy Mack would turn out dozens of these without blinking an eye and I think it's pretty clear that this here is one of the weaker ones. That's not to say the film doesn't have a few merits because it does. I thought Foy was pretty good in his role and he was clearly giving it his all as his energy level helps keep the film moving. I also thought Jack Arthur was good in his part. It's just that the comedy was bland and none of the singing really grabbed my attention.
