Stupid Dog Tricks

This below average Pete Smith short features a woman, as the titled Hollywood talent scout, sitting at her desk reviewing various film clip submissions from pet owners who feel that their dogs have noteworthy talents (as Smith narrates). Most of this producer's features are above average and very entertaining; some have even won awards. Pete Smith received sixteen Academy Award nominations, earning two Oscars and an Honorary Award from AMPAS for this career. Unfortunately, this one is not up to his usual standards. A German Shephard is shown walking a tightrope, another is shown jumping onto a swing. But these talented dogs are actually the highlight of this short whose final segment is particularly lame.

Animal Acts

A Smith named Pete narrates this short subject about animal acts. While there's a trained bear and a chimpanzee, it's mostly about dog acts: cute puppies, and a dog who leaps into a trapeze, and former acrobat Paul Sydell and his troupe of dogs, including him training them... except for the tail, untrainable as a cowlick.

Although there's a cute girl to distract the audience, and the slide whistle comes into play, this isn't one of Pete's better short subjects. His trademark snark is muted by the cuteness of it all. In addition, this one seems padded. All of Pete's shorts may be subject to that knock. They were intended to pad out a film program.show or what?

Hollywood Scout was a pretty funny Pete Smith Specialty Short

This Pete Smith Specialty showcases Jane, his talent scout of various animals. First, she sees various dogs in someone's backyard as some puppies are going to her lap and one is licking her face to her pleasure. She also sees some film of other dogs which she likes. Then, she encounters a man and his bear at her office as that bear does things that disturb the man and she gets flabbergaasted at watching the whole thing...The dog scenes were cute while the bear act was pretty hilarious. So I say give Hollywood Scout a look. It was on the DVD of The Clock.
