Fox Movietone Follies is good entertainment all the way. The numbers, specialties and song and dance stuff come through very well. One bit done in Technicolor offers a variant from the black-and-white but achieves little itself.

‘The Breakaway’ and ‘Walkin’ with Susie’ are the big numbers. Wisp of a story. A young Virginian sells his plantation and comes north to marry his sweetie. She is in the chorus of a new show and refuses to quit the theatre to settle down as a wife.

Chagrined by her refusal to chuck everything and go to the parson’s, young man buys the controlling interest in the show and fires her. She refuses to quit and says he cannot fire her. ‘Why not?’ he demands. ‘Because Equity won’t let you,’ she retorts. ‘Who’s he?’ demands the hick.

Most of the action and the Follies part of the picture represents the opening night of the revue. Sue Carol takes first honors but needs dancing lessons. Warren Hymer makes a stage manager pretty rough, tough and nasty.
