Storyline

Coming back from a Ocean trip to New York, Loyce Whiteman, Harry Barris and Art Jarrett decide to visit composer Burton Lane, who is also aboard to rehearse a little. Saxophonists Benny Krueger and Rudy Wiedhoeft meet and joke with their instruments, also commenting on prohibition. Songstress Sylvia Froos is singing at home while reading the paper. When she reads a story about a new scandal involving another young performer, she is glad that the press will never find out about her new pyjamas, but then a reporter shows up from under her bed. Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

Curious little nothing from the transition from vaudeville to radio
29 November 2005 | by max von meyerlingSee all my reviews

A quick little look at early radio performers. very transitional picture as the roster is made up of former vaudevillians who wouldn't make it in Radio or the film industry. For example there is a tenor, once the kings of show business in vaudeville, burlesque and especially Broadway shows. The introduction of the electronic microphone and amplified sound systems, electronically recorded records etc. meant that baritones like Gene Austin and Bing Crosby - the so called 'crooners', would dominate and virtually doom the tenor from popular show business.

They were dead in 1932 only nobody knew it yet. Yet here it is in this package and a very early credit (writing, producing and directing) for Jerry Wald. One wonders if and from whom Wald stole the idea from. A rare visit from classic songwriter/show tune composer Burton Lane is slightly interesting but obviously this series didn't last too long and Wald soon graduated from this and by 1935 was getting writing credits on features. Today it has very little entertainment value and is merely of curiosity value and as an artifact of the more mundane levels of the show business of the era.
