| Four acts...none of which are memorable.
Watching "Vaudeville" is much like seeing a portion of a Vaudeville variety show...only a portion. This is because such a show would usually last a couple hours and deliver many, many acts. But since this is a Vitaphone short, you only see four acts...all introduced by a cute young lady carrying a sign. You see a decent co-ed acrobat act, Reis & Dunn who are advertised as "Wandering Minstrel" but thankfully they do NOT perform in black-face (they're okay), a bizarre dance number where four women (later joined by a man) tap up and down steps all set to bells (it was horrid) and Herb Williams doing a comedy musical act that was very light on comedy!

Despite most of these acts being pretty bad, the idea must have impressed the Vitaphone folks as they made three more films in this Vaudeville series. I haven't seen them yet but they MUST be better than this lame short!!
