Unfunny Smith Short
Getting' Glamor (1946)

** (out of 4)

Bland MGM short from Pete Smith takes a look at the types of make-up women must wear to look pretty and offers up some friendly tips on how they can enjoy their housework more as well as stay in shape doing it. Needless to say, I doubt modern women will find much entertainment out of this short and there's no question that it's not a good movie. With that said, the thing actually becomes watchable simply because it shows the type of mentality a lot of people had when this thing originally played theaters. Watching this short today it is pretty funny seeing how women were looked at and how it appears people thought they'd be a lot happier doing their chores if they added more work to them to stay "pretty" for their husbands. What we basically get here is a good looking woman who smiles while doing her chores because she adds a bit of exercise to them to make her healthy. We also see some other tips including her putting her elbows in lemons to keep them fresh. With Smith involved, he adds a lot of smart remarks but most of them go towards a less attractive woman who keeps messing up the exercises. Either way, this Smith short is really without laughs.
