| Mildly amusing promo for "Ice Follies of 1939"...
... which was a film made in the same year as this short starring James Stewart and Joan Crawford that totally bombed. It was one of MGM's biggest bombs - critically and financially - of the 1930s.

The short starts out showing some big lumbering fellow trying to learn to ice skate. He falls down, can't keep his balance, and out comes an instructor showing how to hold your balance, actually ice skate, and most importantly STOP. You will stop, but it is how you stop that is important. You know you are in weird promo land when a couple comes out and starts ice skating and the announcer talks about how ice skating is destined to become more popular than dancing and ice skating outfits more attractive on women than bathing suits.HUH??

Next some professional ice skaters come out and then the short segues (not very cleverly) into an ad for "Ice Follies of 1939". It is actually fun just for the weirdness and obviousness of it all.
