The Great Morgan is an 1945 American musical-comedy film released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The film is considered one of the more unusual in the MGM canon in that it is a compilation film built around a slight plot line, with a running time of less than 60 minutes.
I'm a fan of character actor Frank Morgan (the wizard in "The Wizard Of Oz"), and, as a fan of old films, I think the work that is being done with film preservation is much needed. So, when I read that this hour-long film which had been thought lost had been found, I was quite interested.
Yawn. There's nothing here to hold your attention for an hour. There's a silly plot line with frustrated actor Morgan becoming a bumbling producer. In actuality, that thin plot attempts to hold together a number of MGM shorts...but it's not short enough. These shorts are of minimal interest (or is it just that it's dated?).
This film was a great disappointment, and I can only assume that Frank Morgan was forced to do this film.
