Special Features:
  • Metro Movietone Revues - Five Vaudeville variety acts from 1929 presented in unrestored HD.
    • #1 (13:45) - The irreplaceable Harry Rose presents a handful of talents including Grace Rogers, Gus Van & Joe Schenck, and The Capitolians. He also performs the infamous song "Frankfurter Sandwiches".
    • #2 (16:37) - Rose returns to entertain us along with four more acts including The Locust Sisters, Johnny Marvin, tap- dancer Rosemarie Scott, and George Dewey Robinson.
    • #3 (13:47) - Notably less colorful presenter Jack Pepper plays the ukulele and shows off the talents of the Ponce Sisters, the tap-dancing Reynold Sisters, and Joseph Regan.
    • #4 (19:05) - Pepper returns with some familiar faces an few new ones: Joseph Regan, the Ponce Sisters, and George Dewey Robinson, along with song-and-dance artist Miss Ella Shields.
    • #7 (8:27) - A sadly truncated installment (with no host!) that nonetheless includes the decent lineup of Tom Waring, Johnny Marvin, Yvette Rugel, and The Happiness Boys.
  • Gus Van and Joe Schenck (5:01) - The popular singing duo, previously seen in Metro Movietone Revue #1 (above), returns for two quick bonus performances presumably recorded around the same time. Sadly, Schenk would die less than a year later at the age of 38.
  • The Dogway Melody (16:23) - A film-themed entry from the then-popular "Dogville" comedy series, this musically-driven piece features a group of dressed-up pups talking and singing thanks to the magic of editing. You know, tastes haven't changed all that much during the last century.
  • Song Selection - Instant access to all 12 of the film's main song and dance numbers.
