The Girl at the Ironing Board Review
The Girl at the Ironing Board is a 1934 animated short film from the Merry Melodies series. It is a very charming, albeit slight entry.
This Merry Melody features a man and a woman falling in love at the laundry room. And their two clothes start dancing together as well. So naturally this is one of those Merry Melodies that heavily rely on music and surely the dance sequences here overwhelm. The entire second half is too musically oriented in my opinion and the first half was much better.
Yes, I loved everything about that first half. That clothes development was fitting to the plot and quite effervescent. That was obvious Merry Melody stuff, but in a good way. I also really liked the animation and the designs plus the score is very good with that opening titular song being quite catchy. The short is quite romantic.
The Girl at the Ironing Board features a weaker second half, but the first one is a lot of fun and very charming.
