"Bubbles" - 1930 Short

Recommended Posts

This musical short featuring the "Vitaphone Kiddies" was shown in the middle of the Baby Peggy festival last night (which was great, by the way).

 

 

 

It's usually coupled up with a Judy Garland movie since the Gumm Sisters are in it, and I've seen it a couple of times before.

 

 

 

But what struck me last night was the older girl who did a solo at around the 4:30 mark, and for the life of me at the end of it she sounded like Betty Hutton.

 

 

 

Could that at all be possible? I couldn't find a cast list online of the kids with anyone but the Gumms.

Hutton was only a year older than Judy and I'm pretty sure made her film debut in band shorts in the late 1930s.

Thanks. In thinking about it further I'd guess the girl doing that number was around 11 or 12 and if Betty was born in 1921 she'd only be 9 when this was made, so probably not likely. But it sure was striking all of a sudden.
