Spend A Few Pleasant Moments With Mr. Bergen & Mr. McCarthy
21 September 2002 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

A Warner Bros. Vitaphone Short Subject.

Charlie McCarthy wants the vaudeville show to BRING ON THE GIRLS, but there are a few other acts to sit through first.

Short & amusing, this is an enjoyable little film to watch. McCarthy steals the show with his remarks to ever-patient Edgar Bergen. Torelli's Circus, with its trained horses, dogs, monkeys & mule is fun; radio impressionists Jerry Goff & Jack Kerr have not fared too well with time's passage. When they finally arrive, Alice Murphy's Quintuplets (a spoof of the Dionnes) provide pleasurable poundage.

Often overlooked or neglected today, the one and two-reel short subjects were useful to the Studios as important training grounds for new or burgeoning talents, both in front & behind the camera. The dynamics for creating a successful short subject was completely different from that of a feature length film, something akin to writing a topnotch short story rather than a novel. Economical to produce in terms of both budget & schedule and capable of portraying a wide range of material, short subjects were the perfect complement to the Studios' feature films.
