Storyline

Molly is seen in two shot sketches; first she's a glamourous star being interviewed in her dressing room. She unusually made up to be sexy in nearly see through pyjamas. She tells, alternating between a french accent and her normal, clear accent free American voice, about how she shot her husband. ( a popular subject of gags in the late 1920s.) The second part shows her as her in her well known persona of the haggard, put upon inner city woman, speaking in Yiddish dialect, relating to her Irish neighbor how her good for nothing husband mistreats her, yet she can't stop loving him.

Not Bad, Not Great
21 August 2017 | by MaliejandraSee all my reviews

Molly Picon performs a few songs in two different settings, the first a modern (for the time) setting singing "Temperamental Tillie" and the second a Jewish stereotype doing "Die Yiddishe Blues". She is cute enough and certainly a talented singer. This is a forgettable but pleasant musical short.

This film was shown at Capitolfest in 2017.
