Vagabond Lover, The

916. THE VAGABOND LOVER (1929-USA). WITH Rudy Vallee AND THE Connecticut Yankees SALLY BLANE, MARIE DRESSLER. Young Rudy and his amateur musician chums visit the swank home Of band leader Ted Grant. All Rudy wants to do is audition for Ted after his graduation from the Ted Grant mail order saxophone school. A zany series Of events leads to Rudy and his band being mistaken for the famous Ted Grant Orchestra and getting in hot water with the local police. The plot may wear a bit thin in spots, but there’s plenty Of crooning and “prOfiles” by Rudy as he serenades the Flapper Of his dreams. A fine quality print and an exceptionally clean sound track preserve a very early and most enjoyable musical. 66 minutes. Musical
