Odd Assortment, 18 July 2012
Author: Clay Loomis from Arroyo Grande, California

I caught this little TCM time filler this morning and was struck by the fact that I hadn't heard of any of the people starring in it. I have become fairly familiar with the talent from the 1920's forward, but I was clueless here.

Most of what was presented was old vaudeville stuff and some songs that I did not know. Some of the dancing was interesting, but most of the "jokes" you could see coming from miles away. The physical comedy shown wore out its welcome long ago.

It was hard to dig up much information on the performers presented here, and there was only one, Avis Andrews, that brought me to attention. She was shown as the torch singer in an all black nightclub. A truly wonderful voice, and really the only reason to look for this short next time it shows up.
