good outing for the team
31 March 2019 | by rodinnycSee all my reviews

Patsy Kelly shows herself to be a very good dancer, and very funny when she goes into a a sort of hi de ho routine which Todd cuts short. It's actually a fun look at the world of radio in the early thirties at L O C O which is supposed to be located in New York. When the actors of the broadcast refuse to play animal characters in an insipid play Todd and Kelly take over. Todd is "spring" and Kelly is "groundhog" among other characters. Kelly gives a very wacky reading making the most of the dopy dialog. Todd plays "spring" straight to no effect. The audience takes this play as an uproarious farce. It's comical. I like the Kelly and Todd pairing. Kelly is a good comedian who is nearly forgotten and that's too bad. She sang...she danced. The Randall Sisters sing a ditty in an odd western or southern twang which is a curiosity in this short. The Sons of the Pioneers have little to do. If Roy Rogers is among them, I missed him. I'll have to watch again.
