Just when I thought there wasn't anything else I could see from Old Hollywood in terms of pure weirdness, here comes THE DOGWAY MELODY, an approximately 20 minute short which spoofs THE Broadway MELODY and THE Broadway REVUEW OF 1929 in an original way. Instead of using humans or doing an animated short, dogs on puppet strings re-create scenes from these two movies using hilarious, almost crazy dialogue. One highlight is the sequences that spoof both "Mammy" from THE JAZZ SINGER" and "Singing in the Rain". Part of a series of movies called "Dogville" (not to be confused with the 2003 film DOGVILLE) that hit the theatres between 1929 - 1931.
