Subject
[ARSCLIST] Early film with Jimmy MacPartland and Benny Goodman






Hello,
 
Can anyone help please with information regarding a film - apparently 
screened in London, (UK) - in August 1929.
 
The UK 'Melody Maker' magazine for September 1929 reports : " Six of the 
stars from Ben Pollack's American Band - Jimmy MacPartland, Jack 
Teagarden, Bennie Goodman, Dick Morgan, Vic Breidis and Ray Baduc, 
accompanied Estelle Brody in a ten minutes short, which was given its 
first presentation in this country at the Capital, Haymarket last month.
 
The short is entitled 'Me and the Boys'.   MacPartland, Teagarden and 
Morgan are featured in a vocal trio" . . . etc etc.
 
It is possible (not certain) that a Victor Saville for 'British 
International Pictures' was involved in some way.    My enquiries, so far, 
suggest no copies of this film exist in UK libraries.
 
Thanks,
 
Russ Barnes (Dorset, UK)
