| Bright, fun short with eye-popping production numbers
To say this short is fun is an understatement. Story Conference, in addition to being a vehicle for Broadway star Lillian Roth, treats us to a comic rendition of the ins and outs of getting a Vitaphone short off the ground -- all on short notice. Besides being a knowing and wry send-up of how Hollywood operates, Story Conference offers up a series of progressively lively numbers -- featuring the requisite pretty girls and buoyant dancing -- that culminates in one of the most truly inspired production numbers you're likely ever to see. With snappy songs by Warners ace songwriter Cliff Hess, Story Conference is not only of interest to Lillian Roth fans, but is itself another terrific entry in a long line of excellent musical/comedies from Vitaphone.
