Hollywood Admires Itself
23 August 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

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.
