Meet the Boyfriend Reviews:

This breezy musical short serves as a showcase for the adorable young Lillian Roth, a gifted performer better remembered for her war with alcohol than for her talent. Today we're accustomed to hearing celebrities discuss their struggles with substance abuse, but when Roth published her memoir "I'll Cry Tomorrow" in 1954 it was highly unusual and decidedly dangerous for an entertainer to go public as a trouble drinker. (Admittedly, by that mission Roth's present business career was all but over and she had tiny to lose.) The ebook became a best-seller, and the subsequent movie ver starring Susan Hayward as Lillian was a hit as well, forever establishing Roth as a troubled but brave girl haunted by private demons.All of that was many years soon and, seemingly, a million miles away when Lillian made this sweet, easy novelty short. When Meet the Boyfriend went before the cameras she was around 20 years old, pretty as a bug and full of life. The setting is a park by a lake (though obviously shot in a studio) where a group of young undergrads relax, sing, and josh every other. To kick things off a male quartet harmonizes on "I've Got 'It' But It Don't Do Me No Good." They accompany themselves on ocarinas and a penny-whistle, and while we listen we're treated to a running gag: a sporty young guy repeatedly tries and fails to begin his jalopy. Later Lillian's mates decide to head for the lake, but she lingers behind, preferring to wait for her big, handsome boyfriend Jimmy (as she lovingly describes him). While she waits Lillian sings a bluesy ballad, "Sort of Lonesome," a soulful tune that sets a mellow mood.--until Jimmy arrives, that is. He turns out to be a comically nerdy man with thick glasses, bow-tie, and a receding hairline. Lillian is delighted with him anyway, and proves it by launching into an exuberant rendition of "Me and the Boyfriend (Jimmy and Me)." This one is a true show-stopper, punctuated by Roth's excited mauling of the terrible guy: she grabs his face, slaps him, whacks him, and eventually leaves him flattened on the ground at her feet. The number is hilarious, but I have to wonder if the unidentified actor testing Jimmy now got a tiny damaged! Roth performed a routine related to this in The Love Parade, a nice musical detail of 1929, where in the course of a duet she gives comedian Lupino Lane a nice pasting. It seems to have been a Roth trademark to receive rough with the guys, but she brings a good-natured cheeriness to these sequences that still comes across. This is a fun short that puts the spotlight on a talented lady who deserves to be remembered for more than her troubled private life.


This one is set at a college picnic by the lake, with three musical numbers. "We've Got It Terrible but It Don't Do Us No Good" is by a quartet of college men, with ukulele, pennywhistle, and ocarinas. "Sort of Lonesome" is a romantic song, sung straight by Roth. "Me and the Boyfriend" is sung more uptempo by Roth, made comic by her actions as she manhandles her geeky boyfriend. Miss Roth is very appealing -- they could present this sort of thing on MTV.


This is a delicious musical short that shows what a unbelievable talent Lillian Roth possessed. Lillian made quite a several of these shorts at different stages in her career. This one, set on a river with college co-eds, was at the begin of her career to showcase her singing talents. Norman Taurog directed and he was at the begin of a long directorial career.It begins off with a glee club of college men (accompanying themselves on different instruments, including kazoos) singing "I Got it Terrible but It Don't Do Me No Good". Talk then turns to Lillian and her love for Jimmy. Everyone goes on the lake but Lillian, who sings the soulful "Sort of Lonesome". She is then joined by the elusive Jimmy (who turns out to be a dork with a receding hairline!!!!) She sings the madcap "Just Like Jimmy and Me".Recommended.
