Fifth entry in the series has Jerry Wald aboard a train with a group of people around him. He shows them how to properly mix a drink and then we jump to the music and comedy acts. Included here as The Three Keys doing "Them There Eyes", Harriet Lee and Her Boyfriend doing "A Great Big Bunch of You" and the highlight being Harry Rose, The Broadway Gesture, doing "I'm Just Wild About Harry". This entry in the series actually contains some of the best music we've heard so far. The highlight is certainly The Broadway Gesture who easily steals the film with his blend of rock and jazz. The comedy bits really aren't funny and the entire opening intro could have been replaced with a different music act but fans of these old shorts will want to check this one out.
