The short "Paree Paree" is scheduled to be shown on TCM on December 5, 2016, as part of a whole day and night of Vitaphone shorts (and a few related features).

 

Nothing compares to all day Vitaphone shorts (and features). Woo hoo!

Maybe you knew this already, but just in case you didn't... and others may be interested in this delightful musical short too...

It is an "extra" on the DVD for SILK STOCKINGS with Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse. Although the TCM shop is selling it "bulk" in a set of Cole Porter, it is sold seperately if you look around... or check ebay (used DVDs can be pretty cheap), Amazon, etc. Although that may not be a "great" musical, it is still a "good" MGM musical worth adding to your collection... along with your Warner-Vitaphone short with Bob Hope, a Cyd Charisse documentary and another MGM short POET AND PEASANT OVERTURE. (See you get your money's worth!)

Funny I found your post. I had posted a blog over on the fan forum a while ago and boo-booed listing this short with the DVD LES GIRLS. Oops!

I was wondering if anyone had a clip of Bob Hope singing "You Do Something to Me" in the musical short Paree, Paree? Or if anyone knows a link to somewhere on the web where I could watch it free? I can't even find in on Amazon to buy cheap =(
Thanks!
