Vitaphone two-reeler about a greeting card store owner (Lita Grey) who finds herself losing customers to her rather crooked rival. In order to strike up some new business she comes up with a new form of cards. At first they simply sing and eventually you can eat them. SEASONED GREETINGS isn't the greatest movie ever made but there are several factors that make it of interest to film buffs. For starters, Lita Grey was obviously at one time married to Charles Chaplin so that holds some interest. Secondly, a very young Sammy Davis, Jr. can be briefly spotted towards the end of the picture. Third, actor Robert Cummings makes his debut here. The "story" itself is somewhat of an interesting one but of course it's mainly used to highlight various musical acts. The musical acts here certainly aren't the worst I've seen in a Vitaphone short but at the same time none of them are going to have you rushing out to try and find copies of the songs. Grey actually turns in a nice little performance and Carleton Macy is also very good as the mean-spirited rival.
