Pleasant Vitaphone short has Gilbert Wells performing three songs: "International Day," "Jubilee Blues," and "Trustful Joe" before the cameras. I always find watching these early Vitaphone shorts to be pleasant because you're seeing someone who was probably on the vaudeville stage get onto a movie set, in front of the camera for what's probably the first time and having to perform. There aren't too many records of the people who were on vaudeville so getting to see them in these shorts is always a thrill. This one here was pretty entertaining as Wells does a good job with the three numbers and for the most part he keeps you entertained throughout the eight-minutes.
