Storyline

Dressed as Pagliacci and standing in front of a simple set - a curtain and a small bench behind him, abstract cactus sculptures on stands to his left and right - Bernardo De Pace, "the Wizard of the Mandolin" plays several pieces. He performs as if before an audience, although there is no sound from them. The camera occasionally moves into a closeup of De Pace. Half-way through, a string breaks, but he continues without a pause. Is that his hair or a Bakelite helmet? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This was another enjoyable Vitaphone musical short, Bernado De Pace, I watched on The Jazz Singer DVD
29 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

The IMDb title above is the name of the performer in this Vitaphone short but on screen is added "The Wizard of the Mandolin". This guy plays the mandolin guitar the whole time with some compositions I recognize (like "Humoresque") but most I didn't. I did enjoy the whole thing especially when he did some facial reactions. He's dressed in a clown costume but this guy doesn't have any white makeup on his face. I'm supposed to write ten lines in order for this review to be submitted but with what I just described, I don't know what else to say except I do recommend this if you're interested in movie history like I am. Really, I just can't think of what else to mention except I'm now going to watch another one...
