Description

A two-hour collection of film shorts with Big Band performances including Cary Grant's film debut as a sailor cruising the Far East in search of whoopee, Artie Shaw presents a master class in the elementals of swing-band construction, a very young Bing Crosby croons three ballads in DREAM HOUSE, a two-edged homage to that icon of the thirties naughties, Betty Boop, with Helen Kane, Mae Questel's actual voice in a Rudy Vallee short, and performances by Talulah bankhead, Maurice Chevalier, Astaire and Rogers (not from their movies), Lillian Roth, Ruth Eating and Ethel Merman.
