Rhapsodies in black & blue( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musical shorts in the early years of sound film were often surprisingly imaginative productions. And, before the coming of the Production Code in 1934, they could be fairly racy as well. This volume features some of the legends of stage and screen in eight oddball mini-musicals shot at Paramount's New York studio in Astoria, Queens. Cary Grant makes his film debut as a sailor cruising the far east in search of whoopee in "Singapore Sue". In "Rhapsody In Black And Blue", Louis Armstrong dons outlandish leopard-skin attire to stand knee-deep in soap bubbles, where he trumpets and sings "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead You Rascal You", while in "Insurance", a manic Eddie Cantor undergoes a balmy medical exam. Another medical check-up, by Dr. Rudy Vallee and Nurse Mae Questel in "Musical Doctor" finds musical deficiencies to be at the root of all ills. Also on tap: serenades both operatic (tenor Nino Martini in "Moonlight And Romance") and hayseed (Eddie Younger and His Mountaineers in "All For The Band"), and two 1931 shorts ("Be Like Me" and "Old Man Blues"), Ethel Merman showing the sweeter and more vulnerable side of her brassy personality.--Back of container
