This was a decent musical/comedic short that was an extra on my 'Double Wedding' DVD, disc 3 of my 'TCM Spotlight: Myrna Loy and William Powell Collection'. Though it definitely utilizes the poor-boy version, or the second fiddles, of the studio's song-and-dance division, I had no trouble with it. I wouldn't have specifically paid to watch something of this resolutely mediocre quality, but seeing it as a free extra tacked on wasn't bad. It's short and sweet and gives one a different look at what a musical number from the period, either on Broadway or in film, would be like. Glad I spent a few minutes watching this little curio from four generations ago.
