Saturday Morning Cartoon: Just a Gigolo (1932)

Betty Boop makes a brief appearance as a cigarette girl and mistress of ceremonies in this sassy animation/live action hybrid set in a nightclub. That's French singer and actress Irene Bordoni singing the title tune. Though Bordoni found her greatest success on Broadway, she did sing in a few Hollywood musicals. She was a huge influence on 1920's fashion--inspiring many women to emulate her short bangs.
