Birds Of A Feather Showoff Together
6 April 2002 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

An MGM Oddity Short Subject.

A menagerie full of fabulous fowls preen their FINE FEATHERS for the camera.

Birds of all sorts, from the flamboyant Manchurian Crane to the ordinary Barn Owl, from the exotic Victoria Crown Pigeon to the unprepossessing Vulturine Guinea Fowl, are on exhibit in this humorous early Technicolor film. Explanatory remarks are by the ever-eccentric Pete Smith.

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.
