The TV-like machine on which June Havoc is shown performing "The Man with the Big Sombrero" is a "Panoram," a video jukebox that showed short films of popular bands and entertainers during the 1940's. The films shown on it were called "Soundies" and were essentially the music videos of the time. See more »

This period in American movies saw such delights as "Hellzapoppin". Here the actors bring to attention that they are playing in a film. They make faces at the audience, wallpaper comes alive, there is a woman who keeps popping up in scenes where she isn't even acting. The dialog and the plot move lightning fast and there's no time at all to waste in this pleasant and often hilarious comedy. There's a wedding reception before the wedding, fortunes earned and lost in a space of minutes, a married couple disunited throughout. What's not to like? This film has been in public domain and has been copied, often badly and on stock of poor quality, so viewer beware...
