Movie Reviews

Major Disappointment
Richard Goodman | 09/21/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is advertised as Swing Era - Benny Goodman. Be advised that there are only two BG tracks on the DVD. They are both excerpts from a 1937 movie "Hollywood Hotel" yet the DVD does not even use the two best songs from that movie (Sing,Sing,Sing and a number by the BG Quartet). There are five Artie Shaw tracks - four from a movie short and the other from a Fred Astaire movie. There are eight Jimmy Dorsey tracks - five from a movie short and three from "soundies" that were produced to play on Panoram machines. There are five Hoagy Carmichael tracks (how did he get in there?) backed up by Jack Teagarden that are all taken from a movie short. Finally, there are ten tracks of a Jack Teagarden dixieland group that were produced as Snader Telescriptions. Snaders were made between 1950 and 1954 -long after the swing era was over and long after Big T was past his prime. The producers of this DVD are guilty of false advertising.
Dick Goodman (unfortunately no relation to Benny)"
