Hal Leroy's 1937 Vitaphone short UPS AND DOWNS is scheduled to be shown on TCM on December 5, 2016 as part of a whole day and night of Vitaphone shorts (and few related features).

 

Thanks! Wouldn't dare miss it.

Good news Hal Leroy fans!

Hal's 1937 Vitaphone short UPS AND DOWNS is scheduled on TCM on Sunday morning, March 15, 2015 at 7:38 A.M. (eastern time).

This one also features a couple of youngsters on their way up: June Allyson and Phil Silvers.

In keeping with Yancey's list over in the FitzPatrick Traveltalk thread, here's a list of Hal Le Roy shorts that haven't been shown on TCM in years, if ever (titles are from the IMDb):

 

  1. The High School Hoofer (1931)
  2. The Way of All Freshman (1933)
  3. Syncopated City (1934)
  4. In the Spotlight (1935)
  5. Oh, Evaline! (1935)
  6. Wash Your Step (1936)
  7. Swing for Sale (1937)

 

Hal Le Roy fans would be thrilled if any of these rarely seen shorts were to be aired. How about it, TCM?

Looks like TCM's showing a Hal Le Roy that hasn't been played in years -- Wash Your Step, on May 1 at 5:30am -- but only in Canada!

 

As someone who more than once has requested Wash Your Step on the "Suggest a Movie" page, this is pretty tough to take. I sure hope TCM finds a way to air it here in the States, because it's one of the Hal Le Roys that's not available on dvd.

 

The TCM shorts programmer's been doing a great job with the Traveltalks and Charley Chase (and other Hal Roach) shorts. Hopefully we''ll be able to see this and other underplayed Hal Le Roys some time soon, like The Way of All Freshmen (1933), In the Spotlight (1935) and Oh! Evaline (1935).

I'm sure you'll enjoy PICTURE PALACE, especially if you liked PRIVATE LESSONS. They both feature the real Dawn O'Day (not Anne Shirley). I'm a big fan of hers...wish she made more films.

Just wanted to say thanks to TCM for a job well done in presenting not only Private Lessons, which I hadn't seen on TCM for years, but for airing Mitzi Mayfair's The Policy Girl.

I'm even more excited to see a Hal Le Roy on the schedule that I've never seen at all -- Picture Palace -- this Thursday afternoon.

Well done, TCM, keep the rarities coming! Especially the Vitaphones!

I've seen most of Hal Leroy's shorts on TCM and always wondered why he never really made it in films.

As coincidence would have it, TCM aired Ups and Downs this morning between the showings of Best Foot Forward and I Want to Live. Unfortunately, it wasn't listed on the schedule.

Just made a quick check:

Public Jitterbug No. 1 (1939) -- The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle dvd
The Knight Is Young (1938) -- Best Foot Forward dvd
The Prisoner of Swing (1938) -- The Dawn Patrol dvd
Ups and Downs (1937) -- Stage Door dvd
Rhythmitis (1936) -- The Petrified Forest dvd
Main Street Follies (1935) -- Annie Oakley dvd
Use Your Imagination (1933) -- The Little Giant dvd

That's a good group right there. Hope it helps!

I'm with you on this one. Mainly because my favorite WB songwriting staffers are well-represented on most of his shorts. But to answer your question, a handful of them are out on various dvds, though I'd love to see them all collected together, like the Joe McDoakes set. The ones that are out on dvd most likely say so in their IMDb listings. You might want to check that out. Good luck in your search.

Would like to see all of the Hal Leroy musical shorts on TCM. Are any of them on dvd?
