Lots of Eye Appeal
9 November 2017 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Lavish musical short assembled from Warner Bros. and its archives. I really enjoyed the 16-minutes full of song, dance, and riveting Technicolor. Oh sure, some of the musical bits are better than others, and I agree with a fellow reviewer that Foran should be singing Pagliacci instead of a western ballad. Nonetheless, for us guy viewers, there's plenty of eye-catching girls dancing their way into our hearts and maybe dreams. Note too how immaculately dressed everyone is, along with the bomber hats women wore in those days-- Yikes! Anyway, to me it's a great little short, just bursting with eye-appeal. There's no particular message except for Hooray for Hollywood. Thanks WB.
