A collection of shorts from the early days of sound films, this edition of HOLLYWOOD RHYTHYM presents shorts from performers who, like Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers, would become legends later in their career. Additionally, because many of these shorts were made before the Production Code was enforced in 1934, these film are both racy and sometimes fairly bizarre. Ethel Merman stars in one of the more surreal shorts, "Her Future," in which she defends her life before a judge and performs two musical numbers. Also of note is the presence of "Singapore Sue," in which Cary Grant makes his first film appearance. A delightful collection of early musical shorts from some of Hollywood's greatest performers, these films are priceless for their glimpse of the stars before they were stars as well as for some unforgettable musical moments.
