Review

  • This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is a very early short narrated by Pete Smith. It is fairly representative of the style of short he would become noted for: broadly comic narration, good camera work and effects for a short subject and covering a somewhat offbeat topic in a comical, somewhat jocular manner. Turner Classic Movies runs this as filler between features occasionally and virtually every March for the 31 Days of Oscar. Not his best but well worth catching. Recommended.
