totally fun "in betweener" on Turner Classics
22 November 2014 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Competing stores vie for business at Valentines Day. Lita Grey is the owner of one store, and she butts heads with the owner of the store next door to win the business before she goes under. George Haggerty is her clerk, "Parky". Check out the bio on Lita Grey (Chaplin... yes, she was married to Charles Chaplin when she was only 16.. that's a whole different story...) Watch for the featured act "Beverly Barn Hill Billies"..... fun, and funny. One guy flips his ear forward with his fingers, while another plays the spoon... and a whole bunch of violins. Carleton Macy is Mr. Beetle, who wants to buy out his competitor (Grey). Grey sings several songs, and does a great job of it. Fun twenty minute shorty by Warner Brothers. Directed by Roy Mack... one of the first things he ever did was direct Judy Gumm Garland... in one of the first films SHE ever did... in "Bubbles" ! Fun bits, nonsense story, but if you go with it, it wont hurt a bit. Fun song by "the Sizzlers... Pettin in the Park. ...Chocolate Music. You play it, then you eat it! WHY does this only have 5.8 stars, as of today ??
