      Murder in Swingtime is a movie short that features Les Hite and His Orchestra along with vocalist, June Richmond.

      The interesting thing is that as you go along, you are led to believe that there is going to be a murder. There is a lot of hype about this. The question was, just who was the victim and who was the killer going to be?

      Then we get the murder, or so


      viewers think. This leads to a very unique trial. I actually think the trial is the best part of this production. It’s definitely not normal. As the trial proceeds, each section of the band play for their defense. That part is really enjoyable.

      Then comes the big reveal about the murder and the victim, and it’s not at all what you think; or at least, I didn’t have ...


      • a clue.

        In the end, this motion picture piece is really about the style of music, and Dinah is actually symbolic in her portrayal. I thought it was very clever.

        Ultimately, I enjoyed the music that was presented here. It was swinging, as they say. Vincent had a nice voice, and I really enjoyed listening to her.

        Recently, I have been watching a lot of vintage movies, films from another era.

        When doing so, you have to dismiss all the technology of the day. If not, the magic of these films can get lost.

        That’s true here. It’s a simple film really, but it’s a mystery musical, and even through the golden age of musical variety, there weren’t many done like this one. That gives this production a special quality.

        So if you get the chance, give this movie a chance as well.
