Two o'clock. You better ramble. Father will be coming home any minute now and you know that the old man's a bad hombre when he's loaded with scotch. He's liable to shoot you in the garden.

Some sources list the original running time of "Hollywood Revue of 1929" as 130 minutes. At least two sequences in the original roadshow version are missing from current prints: an opening recitation by the showgirls who are seen posing in the "Hollywood Revue" sign after the opening credits, and the appearance of Nils Asther, who assisted Jack Benny in introducing the final "Orange Blossom" number.
