| The Winner
When a radio show announces a competition with the prize as Ruth Etting performing at a private party, some friends convince one of them that he has won and make him throw a big party.

Ruth Etting, a Broadway singing star of the era, made several attempts at the movies in the 1930s, but none of them took. In this one, she appears to sing three songs and portions of a couple of others. This Vitagraph short, filmed at the studio in Brooklyn serves to offer Miss Etting as the star of a variety show. She is pretty bland except when she is singing and the jokes in the story are fairly corny, but the short is entertaining for the singing and dancing.

Eleanor Powell appears in the chorus, but I did not spot her. Maybe you'll have better luck.
