Sunny Skies (1930)
Sunny Skies was the first of two attempts by Tiffany Studios to make a major talkie star out of Jewish dialect comedian Benny Rubin. The story takes place on a college campus, where over-aged freshman Benny Krantz (Rubin) is the roommate of football hero Jim Grant (Rex Lease). Rather full of himself, Grant goes out on a toot with a "fast lady," and as a result is booted out of college just before the big game. Managing to redeem himself on the day of the crucial gridiron contest, Grant is again detained when he gallantly submits to a blood transfusion to save Krantz's life. Will he make it to the game on time? Will he score the winning touchdown? Marjorie "Babe" Kane, best known for her ingenue work in the Bing Crosby 2-reelers for Mack Sennett, does a cute imitation of her boop-a-doop namesake Helen Kane. Sunny Skies was followed in short order by Hot Curves, which also co-starred Benny Rubin, Rex Lease and Marceline Day and was also set against a sports background. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More
