Tedious...
12 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This short film stars Guy Shy...a guy I've never heard of up until now. Apparently, he wasn't a popular star as he only have 10 credits listed on IMDb...and I can see why. His routine is tiresome...as is this entire expensive looking short from Vitaphone.

The plot is hard to describe and the story itself seems pretty irrelevant. Mostly, it's filled with song and dance numbers that makes little sense and the overall effort is a total bore. The film begins in the present and then jumps back to colonial days....all accompanied with humor that won't make you laugh and song and dance numbers that are boring. Overall, a terrible film with nothing to really recommend it other than a BRIEF appearance by Shemp Howard.
