In this 1932 cartoon produced by Max Fleischer and starring Betty Boop, French singer/actress Irene Bordini performs one of the earliest versions of I'm Just A Gigolo. In this bouncing-ball screen-songs cartoon, one from a popular series of theatrical shorts, Bordoni is presented by America's sweetheart and favorite flapper Betty Boop. In the 1920's and 1930's Fleischer pioneered the development of animation with his inventions and films. In many of his cartoons Fleischer would feature music and live action performances from musicians who were little known outside the music circuit at the time, introducing the greater world to musicians like Cab Calloway and others.
