Hardly a typical Tex Avery effort (indeed, Avery doesn't even receive a screen credit), Page Miss Glory is instead a fascinating exercise in 1930s Art Deco. It all begins as the town of Hicksville prepares for a visit by the celebrated Miss Glory, with no one more excited than Abner, the gangly bellhop at the local hotel. In a dream sequence designed by celebrated magazine illustrator Lenore Congdon, Abner imagines a musical reception for Miss Glory at the ultra-sophisticated "Cosmopolitan Hotel" in New York. What follows is an eye-popping melange of Astaire-like chorus boys dancing in forced-perspective unison, dazzling neon-light pyrotechnics, and surrealistic champagne bottles emptying into streamlined martini glasses--all in glorious Technicolor.
