Warner's The Melody Makers
Let's Sing a Song of the West (1947)

*** (out of 4)

Entry in Warner's "Memories from Memory Lane" with The Melody Makers singing four songs associated with the West. Deep in the Heart of Texas, My Little Buckaroo, Home on the Range and Stephen Foster's Oh! Susanna are the songs performed. This is the second film in this series that I've seen and this one too has the songs done and then re-done but the second time the words are on the screen so that those watching can sing a long. This type of entertainment at the theater is long gone but this short stands as a good, nostalgia trip down memory lane, as the title says but for different reasons. The Melody Makers have a nice sound to them and really deliver some nice performances of the songs. Dick Foran sings My Little Buckaroo from the 1937 film
