Rare glimpse of Ziegfeld Follies,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Glorifying the American Girl (DVD)
This DVD (Synergy Entertainment) is a higher-quality version than expected of this public-domain film. The video is quite crisp for an un-restored film and the audio rings clear. The film itself is a delight, giving us our only existing opportunity to glimpse an actual Ziegfeld Follies show. Mary Eaton is delightful in the lead - so beautiful and such a lovely dancer! Rare footage of the young Eddie Cantor, Helen Morgan and Rudy Vallee as they appeared on stage are gems. While this is an absolutely no-frills disc, its audio/video quality is quite good and I would definitely recommend it above the slightly cheaper (but always lousy) Alpha Video version.
