20thamendment

The 20th Amendment

The 20th Amendment (1930). A forgotten Paramount-Astoria short subject starring Jack Haley (several years before he played the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz) as a man who benefits from the passage of an amendment allowing polygamy. His favorite female is Evelyn Hoey, with whom he sings the Gorney-Harburg song “You’re the Cure for What Ails Me” (not to be confused with a completely different song with the same title that Yip wrote with Harold Arlen for the 1936 Warner Bros. release The Singing Kid).
