Bosko's Picture Show (1933) Poster

Bosko runs a movie theater that shows a wacky newsreel with Jack Dumpsey, a slapstick short from Haurel and Lardy, and a turn-of-the-century melodrama starring Honey.

In what appears to be the first instance of Warner Bros. cartoons spoofing the cinema, Bosko plays the piano at the debut of Honey's movie. The Out-of-Tone News, and then the Haurel and Lardy movie, inadvertently predict cartoons like "She Was an Acrobat's Daughter", "The Film Fan" and "Bacall to Arms". Bosko's trick at the climax of Honey's movie resembles the scenes in later cartoons where a silhouette appears - presumably an audience member - and interacts with the characters.

Anyway, the Termite Terrace crowd (is it too early to call them that?) was just getting started, so we can forgive them if the material doesn't recall wabbit hunts or things like that. Still worth seeing.
