Johnny Green & His Orchestra (1935)

*** (out of 4)

Johnny Green was without question one of the most popular musicians to appear in these Warner/Vitaphone shorts. He appeared in at least five films as himself and not to mention the dozens of future films that he would compose or have his songs used for. This time out he's visiting a mountain resort where things are just a tad bit boring and he's asked to bring it to life with some music. 'Body and Soul' appears at the start of end of the film and we also get a nice, rich version of 'A Mile a Minute' as well as Marjory Logan joining Green on 'Easy Come, Easy Go'. I personally didn't care too much for the duets but I think the film remains quite entertaining simply because of how energetic Green is. He certainly had some energy that would jump off the screen and his band also keeps things moving at a very nice pace. In terms of style there's really not too much going on but director Joseph Henabery at least keeps everything moving and things never get boring. Fans of classic music will certainly want to check this film out for Green.
