The Mummy of Rootin-Tootin
21 April 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Ann Rutherford is starving to death during Carnival. After tripping a baker and stealing some pastries, which she smears on a gendarme, she hides in a museum where some old scholars are arguing about three mummies. She emerges to discover ambitious janitor Henry Brandon.

With the closing down of the independent shorts producers like Hal Roach in the preceding years, MGM, like the other majors, went heavily in shorts production, relying on them as a place to try out rising talent. While series like "Crime Does Not Pay" and Pete Smith's comedy specials were well received, they also produced some overproduced shorts, like this one, making extensive use of their props department.

It's a pleasant effort, mainly due to Miss Rutherford and her chemistry with Mr. Brandon. But it's still weird.
