Kid Millions

Another Samuel Goldwyn-Eddie Cantor musical comedy extravaganza and again strong entertainment. Follows more or less the comedy lines of all Cantor pictures. And with Cantor singing the same kind of songs.

Another Samuel Goldwyn-Eddie Cantor musical comedy extravaganza and again strong entertainment. Follows more or less the comedy lines of all Cantor pictures. And with Cantor singing the same kind of songs.

For a final sequence an ice cream factory number in Technicolor is one of the finest jobs of tint-work yet turned out by the Kalmus lab, and the joint Seymour Felix-Willy Pogany handling of the colors, mass movements and girls creates a flaming crescendo for the production.

Cantor gives a lot of punch-lines to Eve Sully. Vaudeville comedienne makes a nice impression on her film debut. Jesse Block, her partner, gets plenty of neglect in the script, and so leaves little behind. Ethel Merman tops all her previous screen appearances. Warren Hymer is a strong asset, also.

Story works up to an Egyptian comedy sequence, with harem, mummy, torture chamber and underground wealth as elements.
