Short about the employees of the Homey Foamy Washing Machine factory wanting to put on a show. The boss doesn't want it but they try to get a Broadway producer to support them. Mixed up in this is a romance between factory worker Tom (Kenny Stevens) and the boss' daughter Martha (Doris Weston).
The story is old, some of the acting is dreadful and it was made on next to no budget but this is still an enjoyable musical short from MGM. Stevens and Weston are young, good-looking and so full of life and energy that it's hard not to like them. And when Steven sings this is just great! The man had a beautiful voice and the songs, while corny, were enjoyable. No unsung masterpiece but a silly, short and fun little movie. I give it a 7.
