I was a bit disappointed in this Joe Frisco short after having seen him in THE HAPPY HOTTENTOTS at another Vitaphone Project show, but this is actually a pretty good little two reeler. 'Blind Bob' has written a song and the folks at the music publishing company think that Joe Frisco, his old friend from the Bowery is just right for it. So we see Joe at stage doing his peddler routine. He goes over to the publishing company, where he flirts with a girl act, and then tries out some eccentric dancing to the new song, which happens to be 'Get Happy.' While it's not a great film, it is a pleasant little effort to showcase the talents of the great vaudevillian If you have any taste for this sort of act, you'll be pleased.
