Storyline

Freddie Rich wordlessly conducts his orchestra. They start with an up-tempo "China Boy," with a clarinet and trumpet solo. Then Vera Van sings "I Wanna Be Loved" as a ballad as she sits at her dressing table. Mirrors add to the mood. Two maids help her don an evening gown as she sings. In the next scene, she's with the orchestra, joining the Eton Boys to sing "Little Grass Shack." Halfway through the number, the scene switches to the beach, and she's wearing a grass skirt in place of her gown. The Eton Boys continue with "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans," Vera returns to sing "Chlo-e," and the orchestra finishes with "Mardi Gras." Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A creative musical short.
13 December 2000 | by Hup234!See all my reviews

Creative imagery and great Thirties-style jazz and torch songs! This one-reel 12-minute short is seen on occasion over the classic-film networks. Mirrors are the theme in this high-production-value Vitaphone orchestra feature, reflecting the large musical cast in surreal scenes. The Rich band is quite large, includes strings, and 'Mirrors' has great nonstop instrumental and solo/group music. The 12-minute running time goes quickly indeed.
