A Vitaphone EDGAR BERGEN Short Subject.

An eye specialist must examine a peculiar and most loquacious young fellow.

Master ventriloquist Edgar Bergen found a brief showcase for his talents in THE EYES HAVE IT, a humorous little film which provided some funny lines for wooden gadfly Charlie McCarthy. Unsurprisingly, McCarthy tends to dominate the proceedings. Talking films were the perfect medium for Bergen & McCarthy, although they would have an amazing success on the radio as well.

Christina Graver plays Bergen's pretty nurse.
