(1930, Laurence Schwab & Lloyd Corrigan) As horns belch flames, fog-horned imp Zelma O’Neal zings “I Wanna Be Bad,” then teams with Jack Haley to re-create their Broadway show-stopper “Button Up Your Overcoat,” in thoroughly lovable all-singing-dancing-golfing hit, with Nancy Carroll’s red hair and green eyes sparkling in this restoration of the two-strip Technicolor original. 35mm print, preserved by UCLA Film & Television Archive. Approx. 92 mins.
