Page Miss Glory
Page Miss Glory (sometimes called Miss Glory to prevent confusion with the 1935 film of the same name) is a 1936 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Tex Avery. The short was released on March 7, 1936. The film uses Art Deco backgrounds and character designs.
The cartoon opens with the small town of Hicksville preparing to welcome Miss Glory. In a local hotel, teenage bellhop Abner is anxiously awaiting her arrival, and has prepared for it, but falls asleep while waiting. As he sleeps, he enters a dream sequence in which the hotel morphs into the Cosmopolitan Hotel, an upscale establishment in the big city, with Abner morphing into a fully grown bellhop at the same time. A man arrives and asks the now grown-up Abner to page Miss Glory, a guest at the hotel, and deliver a message to her. Other men arrive demanding that he page the young woman for them.
