Gus Arnheim and His Ambassador Hotel Orchestra (1927)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This early Vitaphone short has Gus Arnheim leading his eleven-man band with a couple numbers. I wasn't familiar with either number but I'm sure a bigger Arnheim expert could probably name them. Considering this film clocks in at just five-minutes there's really nothing going on except the music and that's quite okay because the two numbers are fairly entertaining. I'd be lying if I said either number was something memorable but I think fans of these Vitaphone shorts should at least be entertained through the short running time. Another plus is that back when these were made there wasn't a need to throw in silly stories or stuff like that. A decade later this here would have been stretched out to twenty-minutes but I enjoy these early ones that just stuck to the music. The camera-work isn't too bad for the day and I'd say that the audio was also very good for the time.
