| A Busy Man
Freddy Rich was a busy man in the 1930s. Although his band didn't do many recording sessions, Mr. Rich was heard frequently on NBC and CBS with the great jazz violinist Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang. One of the reasons he was able to get a great gig like that was he was CBS' musical director.

This is a very lively short. If you've gotten used to looking at Roy Mack's earlier musical shorts, you've seen a stationary camera looking at the band. Here you've got pan cuts, a camera that moves to show you the individual soloist and Vera Van is shot singing a song to her mirror and perched on a piano while Fred swings his stick while gazing at her -- a real chick singer.

There was plenty of talent available to Mr. Rich and he used it. Although Roy Mack is often thought as a stolid director, he pulls out all the stops here.
