Listed in the cast is Harriet Nelson (Harriet Hilliard). Harriet Nelson DOES NOT appear in this short. The girl singer is not the wife of Ozzie Nelson; she is pretty, she sings well, she acts well and she remains unidentified. I'd like to know who she is. See more »

The New Vitaphone Look
21 October 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Ozzie Nelson and his band perform "Central Avenue Shuffle", 'Come On, Get Up", "Chinatown, My Chinatown" and "The Mamas With the Moolah", with Nelson and wife Harriet singing.

The Vitaphone musical shorts had certainly changed in the years since 1940, when Nelson had made his previous short. The earlier one had been one of a series that had been ongoing since 1926; although there had been some upgrading, with a camera that moved in the early 1930s, they still began with a master shot of the orchestra and spent a lot of time returning to it. Now, however, Jean Negulesco was in charge, and the camera zoomed, cuts were frequent, and staging showed a more story-telling edge to it.
