David O. Selznick: Your New Producer (1935)

** (out of 4)

A rather strange promotional short has Robert Benchley talking about David O. Selznick coming to MGM. We get to see various films that Selznick did for RKO and Paramount but we also get a preview of what's to come at MGM. We get to see clips for movies such as THE FOUR FEATHERS, SARAH AND SON, STREET OF CHANCE, DINNER AT EIGHT, LITTLE WOMEN, KING KONG, TOPAZE, MANHATTAN MELODRAMA and VIVA VILLA! among others. This is a strange short because it's weird seeing a producer having a 25-minute short dedicated to him but we all know what he would eventually do at the studio. Benchley gets a few cheap shots in but they're all in good taste, although none of overly funny. In the end this is for film buffs only.
