A Cycle of Songs (1928)

** (out of 4)

Florence Brady does three songs in this rather uneventful Vitaphone short. She starts off with "Sunshine" and then follows that up with "Now That She's Off My Hands" and closes things out with the Billy Rose song "Here Comes the Show Boat." Overall I was left pretty underwhelmed with Mrs. Brady as she just never really captured my attention. If I had to pick a highlight for this film it would be the last number, which at least had a pretty good beat to it. However, I found Brady's voice to be rather high-pitched and at times it was somewhat painful to the ears and especially when she'd go to his some of the higher notes. As with a lot of these Vitaphone shorts, this here was filmed obviously very cheap as the camera just stays in one position and it seems that the entire thing was done in just one take. It's always interesting seeing various stars of vaudeville in these old shorts but this one here didn't really take off.
