I'm a fan of character actor Frank Morgan (the wizard in "The Wizard Of Oz"), and, as a fan of old films, I think the work that is being done with film preservation is much needed. So, when I read that this hour-long film which had been thought lost had been found, I was quite interested.

Yawn. There's nothing here to hold your attention for an hour. There's a silly plot line with frustrated actor Morgan becoming a bumbling producer. In actuality, that thin plot attempts to hold together a number of MGM shorts...but it's not short enough. These shorts are of minimal interest (or is it just that it's dated?).

This film was a great disappointment, and I can only assume that Frank Morgan was forced to do this film.
