Very Funny, but politically incorrect
7 December 2001 | by lzf0See all my reviews

Crosby did a handful of two-reel shorts for the Sennett studio in the early 1930s. In all of these, he sang a few songs and participated in exercises in slapstick. This film was directed by Del Lord, Sennett's best director and the man who directed many of the best Three Stooges opuses at Columbia. There is a sequence in this short where Crosby is in blackface and is mistaken for a black actor. Politically correct, it is not! However, this film contains the most surrealistic gag sequence even put in a two-reel comedy. Crosby fights a lion inside a piano. It is to be seen to be believed! Crosby was always known as a fine comedian who didn't shy away from slapstick. Check out the Road movies with Bob Hope for proof. As a singer, he refined the art of jazz singing (along with Louis Armstrong).
