Sonny in Seattle

You may notice that a lot of the comedy short stories from the early 1930's were produced by 'Educational Films Corporation' . . . well, this film company was created to produce short educational films for use in public and private schools, but then as now, money for educating the next generation was woefully short, and the film company found that the market for films in school was not big enough to keep the company going. In an effort to remain solvent the company decided to use their school-age actors and create for-profit comedy shorts that they could sell to movie theaters around the country, and thanks to them we can see many of the future movie stars as young children and teens. In this comedy short Sonny Rogers is running for school president against rich boy Harry Vanderpool, and Sonny wins the election by one vote - the vote of Harry Vanderpool! Rich Harry Vanderpool is not disturbed though . . . he knows how to get Sonny out of town so that he won't be able to serve as class president. At home he asks his dad, who happens to employ Sonny's father, if the job in Seattle is still open, and why not give the job to Sonny's dad . . . that would mean that Sonny and his family would be forced to move to Seattle right away. Sonny's dad does get the job, and now Sonny needs to figure a way to stop the move to Seattle and remain in his home town, and his girlfriend and neighborhood pals scheme to make it happen. Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter over it and enjoy the show.
