Don't Get Nervous (1928) Murray Roth

As Vitaphone short 841 begins, Georgie Price hits the soundstage to talk with Bryan Foy. He wants to postpone the filming of his short but of course it's filming him talking about postponing it. He talks about the difference between being on stage in front of a real live audience and performing for the two guys manning the camera, and that's pretty interesting. However Price is a song and dance guy and after the sort of dancing that the Foys and Shaw & Lee got up to, Price isn't particularly noteworthy. The songs, such as 'Hello Sunshine, Hello', aren't noteworthy either and there's not a lot left except a huge pair of ears.
