Back when Hollywood was ran like a factory, often times the major studios would produce shorts just to show off the talent that they owned. It seems like Warner and MGM were the ones most often doing this and this one here has the Big W. showing off some of their players. We start off seeing the 1934 Rose Bowl Champtions, Columbia University, showing up at the studio where they're greeted by the Busby Berkeley girls, which keeps a smile on the men's face. They also meet Ricardo Cortez but obviously they're not as thrilled with him. Up next we see Guy Kibbee, Dick Powell and Margaret Livingston out mining for gold. Joan Blondell, we're told, is just coming back from work after a month off due to an illness and she addresses the camera and thanks her fans. Also on hand are Huge Herbert, Hal LeRoy, Sammy Fain, Irving Kahan and many others. Again, if ones looking for some sort of story then they're going to be highly disappointed because this 8-minute short is just here to show off the stars. I always enjoy these type of shorts no matter how silly they are because you get to see so many famous faces and usually we're seeing them in ways we're not used to.
