Legendary Ed Sullivan was a very popular newspaper columnist in New York in the 1930s and due to his cavorting with Broadway and Vaudeville stars, made this short for Universal Pictures. "Ed Sullivan's Headliners" (of 1934)is a great 20 minute short! Hosted by a young Ed Sullivan, we hear popular vocalist Sid Gary (Garry) see husband/wife comedy team Jesse Block and Eve Sully (by a fluke they missed out on an audition that Burns & Allen later got and the rest was history) Dialogue comedian George Givot is the owner of a Greek Restaurant who mangles the English language. Also on hand are some strange Vaudeville Acts: a diva vocalizing and a young female contortionist. This film was reissued by Realart/Universal back in the late 40s/early 50s and is believed to still be extant.
