Hello,

I have the Movie "Happy Days" (Fox 1930) on DVD. I enjoyed it very much....particularly the "Crazy Feet" and "Snakes Hips" numbers. It is a musical Revue similar to "King Of Jazz", "Paramount On Parade", "Show Of Shows" and "Hollywood Revue of 1929".

Ann Pennington, follies dancer throughout the 1920's, makes a cameo appearance. There is also pretty jazzy music throughout. Some of the vaudeville skits are cheesy, but some are OK.

The film is available for purchase for $12.00 from the http://www.maymeadcompany.com/product_info.php/manufacturers_id/19/products_id/638 with the quality being average, and some obvious cutting in the middle of some production numbers. I think their source is from an old TV print.

Hope this helps,
Matt
