A Few Moments With Eddie Cantor also known as A Few Moments With Eddie Cantor, Star of "Kid Boots" is an early sound film made in Lee De Forest's sound-on-film Phonofilm process in late 1923 or early 1924 starring Eddie Cantor in an excerpt from the Broadway show Kid Boots. Some sources say the film premiered at the Rivoli Theater in New York City on 15 April 1923. However, Kid Boots opened on Broadway somewhat later, on December 31, 1923.

It contains two songs: "The Dumber They Are, the Better I Like 'Em," and "Oh, Gee, Georgie." The rest of the recorded material would be considered standup comedy. In all, the recording is nearly seven minutes long.
