George White’s Scandals

The George White 'Scandals' legit musicals, Ziegfeld's 'Follies' and Earl Carroll's 'Vanities' date back to the Prohibition era and the current picture, produced by George White, also dates back in that it is reminiscent of the backstage musicals of the early talker days. Though there are a few moments that hit home, on the whole the picture is a drawn-out affair.

Joan Davis and Jack Haley, starred, yeomanly try to overcome the assignments handed them, as do others, but the net result is still very negative. One of the drawbacks is the padding to 95 minutes and the dreary routine concerned with planning a George White’s ‘Scandals’ show, the auditioning, the picking of chorines, costuming, etc.

Story, a weak one, concerns two romances in connection with the staging of a ‘Scandals’, Davis and Haley being paired on the one side and specialty dancer Martha Holliday and Philip Terry on the other.
