Did anyone mention the animated "King of Jazz" salute to Paul Whiteman?  
The show begins with a Walter Lantz 
<http://www.answers.com/topic/lantz-walter> cartoon wherein it is 
recalled how Whiteman earned the title of the King of Jazz. The film was 
released 3/3/30 and was unique for its use of color film in that 
period.  Here's a trailer:

Answers.com has posted a color image of the Swedish poster for the film
