. . . the Warner Bros. narrator soberly observes (ten times!) after intermittent trumpet fanfares inserted randomly throughout this seldom laugh-out-loud short. We get to watch Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson, Bette Davis, Leslie Howard, Patrick O'Brien, and many others tripping over their lines about 80 years after the fact. As Elvis used to sing in "Old Shep," "If there is a Dog Heaven where good doggies go," I'm sure these venerable boners have a wonderful home. But for those of us still among the living, it would be very helpful if the Warner Bros. Home Video people could provide optional on-screen print annotations of who all these dead people are, along with the titles of these mostly lost films. (This information could be provided as an alternate sound track, as Warner employs a large stable of California "Professors of Film" who make out like they can identify all these dearly departed. Some of these 1936 Flubbers probably got "snubbed" by the Annual Academy Awards "In Memoriam" segment 40 or 50 years prior to Joan Rivers losing out on her final two seconds of Fame in 2015.)
