Two tour guides take visitors around Warner Bros. showing them scenes of films allegedly in the making but which actually consist of archive footage from previously released Technicolor Warner Bros. short subjects.Written by
Here's one of those shorts that Hollywood in general and in this case, Warner Brothers in particular, produced to tell audiences how wonderful it was. Robert Arthur, dressed like a bellhop, wanders through the studio to sing little introductions to to clips from half a dozen of the studio's Technicolor and musical sequences, chosen from movies produced from 1935 through 1939.
Warners did a bunch of these compilation shorts in the post-war years. They were economical to produce, since they used a lot of old footage, filled the catalogue with shorts for those theaters which ran full feature-and-selected-shorts programs and touted the expertise, hard work, and expense of producing these movies.
