Important Film
Music Hath Harms (1929)

*** (out of 4)

One of the first all black sound films makes this a pretty important film but it also manages some nice music and laughs. A fast talking womanizer (Spencer Williams) claims to be one of the world's greatest musicians and is offered $500 to play two solos. He takes the job so that he can use the money to buy his girlfriend her own beauty parlor but the problem is that he can't play a lick. I'm really becoming a very big fan of Spencer Williams and once again he turns in a very charming performance here. There's some nice laughs at the final concert and the supporting cast are also entertaining. Nothing ground breaking but a pleasant little short.
