All Talking All Color 1930 Vitaphone Musical Comedy
27 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

The film elements of this early Technicolor musical no longer exists. The Vitaphone disks, which I have heard, preserve the soundtrack. The musical numbers are great especially the number "When The Little Red Roses Get The Blues For You" which is played several times throughout the picture. The love story between Georges Carpentier and Sally O'Neill is secondary to the hilarious antics of the comedy duo, Winnie Lightner and Joe E. Brown. This picture was adapted from the stage musical of the same name by B. G. DeSylva and John McGowan. Only one song from the stage show remained: "You're The Cream In My Coffee." Dublin and Burke provided the great new songs for the Vitaphone production.
