VERY Early Cary Grant -- Not Vital but Interesting
This short could be used as a viable argument for political correctness. The ONLY reason to see it is simply to see Cary Grant in a very early appearance. As the other reviewers have mentioned, miss Chang doesn't sing very well; while she is pleasant to look at, you need to get past the horrible dialog, most of which is given to Millard Mitchell and revolves around badmouthing the Chinese owners of the bar and insulting Chinese people in general. Joe Wong, it turns out, was actually a Filipino named Jose Ocampo Cobarrubias. I guess the show name fits better on the marquee. If you get a chance to see it, do so, but don't kill yourself trying to find this.
