The studio gave the cinema its voice gave offered the audiences a chance to see their favorite actors and actresses from the silent screen era to see and for the first time can be heard in a gaudy, grandiose music comedy revue. But also appear actors and actresses from the first 'talkies', stars from Broadway and of course the German shepherd Rin-Tin-Tin. Frank Fay is the host of the more than 70 well-known stars who show various acts.

[During the "If I Could Learn To Love" number
I represent the Yankee girls
And I the maids of France.
Now we challenge you to loving, but we want it understood, that Yankee kisses have a kick that will knock you out for good.
We French girls also want a chance to get within your arms, for we know you never will be able to resist our charms.
French Boxer in Tails
You girls are all so clever, a neverland of love.
Say, don't you know there's no one who can fight this thing called love.
