Goofs

When the apartment owner points to his apartment number, then reaches to rotate the '6' back to a '9', he uses his left hand. His right hand is holding a note...but it is a right hand in the close-up, which makes the change. When we return to the longer shot, his right hand is still holding onto the note. See more »

Not an impressive change...
25 August 2011 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In 1932-1933, Vitaphone made six "Rambling 'Round Radio Row" shorts--all produced by Jerry Wald and many featuring him playing himself. However, here, Wald is no where to be found and the short is very different from previous ones. While the others ONLY featured singing acts, this one has some comedians as well--with an emcee who THOUGHT he was funny--and tried very hard with some corn-ball jokes. As a result, it's a very, very tedious film with really nothing to recommend it.

Apart from a lot of unlikable material, you do get a chance to see the character actor, Gene Lockhart (father of June Lockhart). Too bad he's doing a god-awful bit with Alan Reed (later, the guy who voiced Fred Flintstone). It's bad because Reed did a stuttering gag that was insensitive AND very annoying. The Lockhart groupies can watch this one--but the other 99.999997% of the viewers can steer clear of this one. And, it just proves that not every Vitaphone short is worth your time!
