This Hollywood Newsreel was a pretty worthy find on the 42nd Street DVD
5 January 2013 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This was an interesting short included on the 42nd Street DVD. It showcases several Warner Bros. stars. We start with the Columbia University football winners of the Rose Bowl visiting the Busby Berkeley girls. Then we see publicity shots of Guy Kibbee, Dick Powell, and a woman I didn't recognize "mining" for gold. Then Hugh Hubert and Elmer the lamb are hanging around the studio. Then Joan Blondell, who had to take some time off after a month-long illness, addresses her fans about her correspondence from them and thanks them. And finally, songwriters Irving Kahan and Sammy Fain showcases one of their numbers from Harold Teen before then having star Patricia Ellis sing another one and then other star Hal LeRoy dancing to one more. This was such a quaint and silly thing that I was pretty amused from frame to frame though I was highly entertained by the last segment. So on that note, this Hollywood Newsreel was worth the watch.
