Storyline

Tina (Wini Shaw), a singing Gypsy with a band of roving gypsies, is invited by Tom (Phillip Reed) to come over to his mother's (Margaret Dumont) estate where a lawn party is in progress. She brings along her friends and a whole caravan of gypsies take over the green, telling fortunes, singing and dancing. Most of the comedy is supplied by the kleptomaniac butler,Bellingham, (Eddie Shubert) and his employer who humors his nutty ways...as good help seems to be hard to find.

Apart from the Technicolor and a nice chance to see Margaret Dumont appear without the Marx Brothers, it's a total bore.
5 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching the Vitaphone short "Gypsy Sweetheart". Sadly, apart from the early and nice looking full color Technicolor as well as seeing Margaret Dumont in a film without the Marx Brothers, it's a total bore. There really isn't much in the way of plot--just lots and lots of singing and dancing in very colorful and stereotypical Gypsy outfits. The songs aren't even very good and I just wanted the whole thing to end! All in all, an expensive looking but boring film because music and dancing (mediocre at that) alone do not make a film worth seeing. The story is completely undeveloped and if I'd been in the theater back when this played, I would have used it as an excuse to use the restroom or go out to buy popcorn! The only good thing about the film is its message that the Gypsies (Romani) are NOT dishonest folk.
