| Despite some of the stilted dialogue, I liked The Romance of Robert Burns
Let me just say that while I found some of the dialogue limp and static (like the woman asking if you'll say you love me like a poet or a man), for the most part I actually like this short about Robert Burns, the man who wrote that theme of New Year's Day-"Auld Lang Syne". The Technicolor was nice and the music score was beautiful. The story was good enough for the brief running time. This was on the Hollywood Hotel DVD though I have to admit I was a bit puzzled for the inclusion there. Perhaps because of the release date (1937) and also possibly because it was one of the "Selected Short Subjects" shown before that particular feature. Whatever the reason, The Romance of Robert Burns was a nice enough short film to watch.
