Bubbles (1930)

** (out of 4)

Judy Garland makes her film debut in this short working under the title of the Gumm Sisters. This early short runs under ten minutes but that's still too long as most of the song and dance numbers are pretty bland and easily forgettable. Watching this short today is also rather disturbing considering some of the short clothing they've got these kids dressed in. I think most people will be drawn to this short because of the young appearance of Garland who is still working with her two sisters. I believe this is the third short I've seen of the group and it's clear Judy was the main talent out of the group. Also worth noting is that Mae Questel has a small part here and she's go on to do the voices of Betty Boop and Olive Oyl. Not to mention she'd later appear in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
