Not My Victrola: Revisiting An Old Favorite

Puttin' On The Ritz was a disc in the first batch of records I acquired more than fifty years ago, so I alway have a listen when I see a new upload on YouTube.  240252 has a great slide show up with his 1930 Brunswick recording of Harry Richman and Earl Burtnett's Orchestra. 

Harry Richman is featured in the video clip from the 1930 movie, "Puttin' On The Ritz."  It's interesting to see that many of the movies from back then were essentially filmed stage plays.  They are great historical glimpses.
