On the other forum (CMU, now “deceased”), I had been making chronological “lists” of each Hollywood studio’s live-action “shorties” in lengthy blogs and, just in this past year or two, I have been adding some of this material to the Wikipedia site: https://en.wikipedia...Warner_Brothers

 

This series of posts (which I am putting online “backwards” so that they will stay in order) can be used as a “checklist” with a bit more information. I also decided to alphabetize for “easy” reference… and I put “easy” in quotes because NOTHING is ever easy. Should Dream Café be listed under “D” or under “J” as Jimmy Clemons In “Dream Café” instead? The way the title cards were seen on screen and the way these titles were listed in periodicals of the period differed.

 

Ah… yes… Warner Brothers!

 

They cranked out a TON of shorties at their Brooklyn Vitaphone facilities, as well as Hollywood and Burbank. Not only was that studio prolific, but they also were pretty good with their batting average, quality-wise. It is surprising just how many of these 6 to 30 minute extravaganzas are still fun to watch today after many decades. We are also VERY fortunate that TCM is owned by the Warner conglomerate and many lost treasures from their vaults have made it to TV and on DVD (and I have tried my best to indicate which titles made it there). So many other entertainment corporations are absolutely clueless of what they may have rotting away in their vaults.

 

Of course, I need to acknowledge my references for these lists and you folks can let me know of my many boo-boos that need corrected… hopefully on a different thread I am creating. BoxOffice Magazine (scans available online for a while, but a bit harder to access in recent years), Film Daily and Motion Picture Herald Magazine back issues (both found on the Internet Archive), with the IMDb.com site have all been a great help. (I had added many Warner shorties to that latter site.) Equally important are the Library of Congress copyright listings Motion Pictures 1912-1939 (1951), Motion Pictures 1940-1949 (1953), Motion Pictures 1950-1959 (1960) and Motion Pictures 1960-1969 (1971). I have a few of these, but they are also scanned online on the Internet Archive and probably feature the ONLY online information of ssssssooooo many forgotten shorties.

 

Then… there is Roy Liebman’s Vitaphone Films – A Catalogue of the Features and Shorts. (McFarland & Company, 2003), sort of a “bible” for this material. It is not totally complete with release dates, plot summaries and technical details; I still had to rustle 60% of my material elsewhere. Yet it is probably one of the very few books apart from Leonard Maltin’s 1972 Selected Shorts that even bothers covering our beloved shorties. Also it features all of the Vitaphone numbers listed here (and I will allow “eagle eye” observers to catch my boo-boos here), as well as “approximate” production times by month (although quite a bit is covered in the above mentioned magazine back issues as well).

 

This list is strictly “live-action”, but we ALL know that Warner Brothers ALSO cranked out the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies (Bugs Bunny included) between 1930 and 1969, in addition to TV specials from the mid seventies onward. Of course, they need their own list… and there is quite a bit online already. Yet… did you know that Warner also distributed some independent cartoons as well? None of these are listed below, but I will mention them here:

 

Dolly Daisy was a puppetoon character created by Howard Moss and Charles Bennes, appearing in two “Vitaphone Variety” shorts: Dizzy Doings (previewed in August 1930) and Hearts And Flowers (December release and one that can be found online if you search). The future Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel), who would also contributed to Warner’s Private Snafu series, had his popular “Flint” ads brought to the screen via Audio Cinema’s unit with future Looney Tune animators Tom and Robert McKimson supposedly contributing. Unfortunately ‘Neath The Bababa Tree and Put On The Spout (both released June 1, 1931) may be lost films today. Another vintage cartoon “commercial” was Graduation Day In Bugland, reviewed by Film Daily on March 1 1931. This one promoted Listerine with a little girl dreaming of cartoon “germs”. In July 1934, another “Vitaphone Variety” was a stop-motion puppetoon released in France a year earlier as Fétiche Mascotte (The Mascot) with Vladislav Starewicz. The Americanized version was titled Stuffy's Errand Of Mercy. A puppetoon pooch seeks an orange for a sick child, but winds up at the Devil’s Ball with all kinds of weirdos that somebody like Tim Burton would, no doubt, love to meet in person.

 

But… enough with my babbling. Starting with Abe Lyman Band and ending with Zero Girl

 

This is the basic set up for each film listed:

 

Title of film

  • producer and/or director listed in (), also an indication if the film was either shot or edited (if a travelogue) at Brooklyn’s Vitaphone studio instead of California. If you see (---), it means I don’t have director information… yet.
  • black & white (bw) or color
  • “approximate” running time in minutes (m) or running time in reels (1 reel is under 11 minutes, 2 reels under 25 minutes) since I couldn’t find an exact time frame here
  • Series Title with key star listed in () and a top billed star in []
  • release date or copyright © date and sometimes a filming date in ()
  • (any awards) or *DVD* availability
  • brief description… and I do keep it brief. Additional cast members are also listed here.

 

I know… I have a strange way of doing these. Trying to save space.

Bell Science Series: technically NOT “short subjects” but TV specials running just under an hour that were produced by Warner’s short subject department and… well… I couldn’t resist including them here. Frank Capra independently produced the first four Bell Science programs: Our Mr. Sun (November 11, 1956 with UPA and director William Hurtz producing animation), Hemo The Magnificent (March 20, 1957 with James "Shamus" Culhane Animation, as with subsequent Capra-produced shows), The Strange Case Of The Cosmic Rays (October 25, 1957) and The Unchained Goddess (February 12, 1958). Warner Bros. (along with its in-house cartoon studio) took over for the next four. All of these featured Frank Baxter, a talented radio speaker (in shows like The CBS Radio Workshop... check out "Joe Miller's Jokebook"), starring as "Mr. Research". All in Warnercolor and running 52-54 minutes in length… so more “feature” than short (since the official cut-off is 45 minutes).

-Gateway To The Mind (Owen Crump; story: Henry F. Greenberg; animation-direction: Chuck Jones & Maurice Noble) October 23, 1958 / Set in a "typical movie studio" covering man's senses of sight, touch, hearing, etc. This is generally regarded as the best of all Bell Science shows with excellent production values and a music score to match.

-The Alphabet Conspiracy (Owen Crump & Robert Sinclair; animation-direction: Friz Freleng & Hawley Pratt) / January 26, 1959  / Features outlandish sets (giant books included) with Hans Conrad playing the Mad Hatter and an “Alice” schoolgirl named Judy (Cheryl Callaway) studying human speech with Mr. Baxter. Shorty Rogers, Stanley Adams and Dolores Starr are also featured.

-The Thread Of Life (Owen Crump & Robert Sinclair; story: Rowland Barber; animation-direction: Robert McKimson) / December 9, 1960 / Less animation here but a nicely offbeat set-up with Baxter talking to “TV heads” of people… in black & white monitors as if “live”. the discussion is heredity and DNA.

-About Time (Owen Crump; story: Leon Salkin, Richard Hobson & Nancy Pitt; science adviser: Richard P. Feynman; animation-direction: Phil Monroe, Maurice Noble, Richard Ung & Robert Singer) February 5, 1962 / Arguably the funniest and most entertaining entry with the King of Planet Q (Les Tremayne) and his fussy assistant (Richard Deacon) demanding that Dr. Baxter set his clock… and we all learn about "time" both on Earth and in gravity-less outer-space.

Big Band, Jazz & Swing Shorts  *DVD* The harmonica band is offered a radio gig... by their landlord seeking the rent. Their imaginations take them to various settings, including Spain with a sexy dancer flirting with the shortest player. There are three shorts featuring this famous comedy group band; the first is rarely seen and the 1942 title sticks mostly to the music without any "story" or real comedy. That one is also enjoyable, but this second film is certainly the best... among the most satisfying Melody Masters of the mid-thirties.  // Vitaphone #1827
