Ohman & Arden in Sound Movie Clip at YouTube
By Randolph Herr

Here is an amazing video from 1929 of Ohman and Arden playing a
wonderful piece called "Try And Play It".  It certainly resembles
"Kitten On The Keys", but it is still great.  I am amazed that any
video of the two boys playing has surfaced at all.  Are there more?

Incidentally, I cannot find any info on a song called "Try And Play
It", so anything you know will help all of us.  Also, this performance
was done before they could splice the audio, so this is their
untouched-up live performance, which sounds perfect to me.
