This movie footage from 1934 is from a reporter who interviews Max Fleischer, animator of the cartoon character Betty Boop.
The interview goes into a retrospective of past episodes of the Betty Boop cartoon animation series created by Fleisher and produced through Paramount during the 1930's. Max draw Betty "out of the inkwell" and asks her to perform a couple of numbers.
There are song and dance numbers from "Stopping the Show," Betty Boop's "Bamboo Isle," and "The Old Man of the Mountain" are used. In the end, Betty jumps back into the inkwell, accidentally splashing ink into the reporter's face.
It is interesting to watch the Betty Boop character interact with real life characters.
