Chaz Chase Steals the Show
Vaudeville Reel #3 (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Vitaphone/Warner short once again tries to put on a vaudeville act to remind people of the old days. As with the first two entries in the series, the quality is mixed overall but the short remains worth watching. The first act is Ray and Sunshine, a acrobatic dance act who are quite impressive to watch because of all the hard work they're doing but I can't say I was entertained. Chaz Chase is up next and easily steals the film playing a hobo. The "act" involves him lighting up a cigarette on both ends, smoking it through the middle and then eating it. He then goes on to eat the matches and countless other items. This act wasn't really what I'd call funny but it was strange enough to be very entertaining. The Holman Sisters are the third act and their trick is that they play two pianos with their backs towards one another and during the song they'll turn around to switch pianos without missing a beat. The final act is Al Trahan who is on the piano making jokes at a woman trying to sing. Again, all the acts are quite mixed but this is something you'd expect going to see a vaudeville show. For the most part I think it's entertaining enough to waste 9-minutes on and if you're not familiar with these old shows then this would be a fine place to start.
