About the film
Magic on Broadway
Release Date: November 26, 1937
Part of Paramount/Fleischer Novelty-Cartoon shorts which featured animation in part of it and live-action in th other half. The cartoon half of this entry has a slot-machine player cheating the machines in a penny-arcade by tying a string to the coin and pulling it out again. The machines get rather animated about being cheated and the petty-gambler receives some rough treatment. The second half is about four minutes of music from Jay Freeman and his band, featuring Johnny Russell as the vocalist.
