The dance sequence has to be seen to be believed
21 February 2010 | by calvinnmeSee all my reviews

It's hard to rate this one. If you rate it on the intended comedy, it's probably a four. If you rate it on the unintended hilarity of the dance sequence in the film it's a definite eight. A chorus girl/singer who can barely sing is hitting the wrong notes like they are punching bags. About half-way into her song you see a line of chorus girls descend from a stairway. Many people who have seen it have said the girls are overweight, but actually they are right-sized for that particular time, which was 1930. The funny thing about their outfits is that they seem to be wearing German WWI helmets that have been outfitted with feathers. Their dance routine is even funnier as choreography doesn't seem to be this film's strong point. The girls seem to be quite bored as they attempt a synchronized split, and some of them don't quite make it to the floor in the process.

This one was on a collection of Pathe musical and comedy shorts on DVD compiled by a private collector. I don't think it's available commercially anywhere, and that's a shame.
