A bit painful to watch
10 July 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

It's very easy to see and hear performances like you'll see in "A Musicale Melange" and think that they are god-awful. However, back in the 1920s when Vitaphone was making sound shorts like this, they were well received and the music seemed pretty hip! Now I am not trying to say that I liked "A Musicale Melange" (I thought it was painful and awful)...but I am trying to put it in some context. Vitaphone was experimenting with film and found that these shorts were cheap to make and their New York location made filming various musical and vaudeville acts pretty easy--so the parent studio (Warner) kept funding them through the 1930s--long after the need to use these as experiments had passed. Ah,...who am I kidding?! Kjerulf's Mayfair Quintette's performance is pretty dreary and could be used to elicit confessions from criminals!
