Very early Betty Boop and a very earthy performance from Rudy Vallee
28 July 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short is actually part of the Screen Songs series that were done by Fleischer Studios as part of the once extremely popular sing-alongs that were part and parcel of a night out at the movies, long before television. Think of them as early forms of today's music videos. Listen to the song Rudy Vallee sings, in particular to the spoken jokes between choruses. Some of the may surprise you! This is very early Betty Boop, so she doesn't look quite the same as she did later. This could accurately be described as a formative cartoon for Betty Boop. Well worth watching. In print and available. Recommended.
