| A real 20-minute charmer
A better-than-average Warners musical short and a real charmer. The featured artist is Bernice Claire (sister of Ina Claire, who's probably best known as the "other woman" in Garbo's "Ninotchka"), who's got a quite good operetta voice. The songs by Mack David and Sanford Green are uninspired but serviceable, but the whole thing is done with a real flair for visual style and choreographer Allan K. Foster does a lot with a small chorus line and a low budget. Cinematographer Edwin DuPar does a good job of lighting and framing even though some of the sets are pretty obviously painted backdrops. The final "Old-Fashioned Cottage" scene is especially audacious in visual design and execution. This one is worth seeing if only for the awesome contortionist dancing by the Gaylene Sisters, who steal the movie out from under the principals.
