Storyline

A reporter, played by Dave Fleischer, interviews Max Fleischer about cartoon sensation Betty Boop. Max paints Betty, who comes to life and performs routines from the popular past films Stopping the Show (1932), Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle (1932) and The Old Man of the Mountain (1933). Betty then dives back in to the inkwell and accidentally splashes ink in the reporter's face before the film concludes. Written by Melissa

A Look at Max and Dave Fleischer
10 December 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A reporter is curious about the incredibly popularity of Betty Boop, so he interviews Max Fleischer. Betty comes out of an ink bottle and with Max's help recreates some scenes from earlier movies. This is more of a curiosity because it is one of those past compilations--simple clips from features that were done earlier. Other than the creative approach, there is little new here.
