The Musical Short
30 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Martin Block moves his disc jockey show to the big screen for the third of his short-subjects. In this case, he interviews Buddy Clark and Ray Noble and has them performing four of their songs: "I'll Dance at Your Wedding", "Good Night Sweetheart", "Linda" and "Serenade." Marjorie Hughes also participates.

This brief series of musical shorts was an interesting experiment in how to structure these shorts, but to my taste it doesn't really work: I usually maintain a -- probably disheartening -- lack of interest in artists outside of their arts. While the music is good, the structure is mildly distracting.
