Hazel Green & Company was another Vitaphone musical short I highly enjoyed
This was another Vitaphone musical short. It features Ms. Green singing several songs of which the first-"Ain't She Sweet"-she renames "Ain't They Sweet" in reference to her band. There's also a male tap dancer who appears a couple of times. Hazel herself also does some tapping at the end. Really, I very much enjoyed this one. Okay, now I have to stretch this review in order to reach the ten lines required for this to be submitted. I can't think of anything else to add except I'm very much enjoying what I've seen so far of these vintage shorts, many of which were made before the first sound feature, The Jazz Singer, was released. I think I'll watch another one...
