Not much left, but what is left is interesting
24 June 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Most interesting is the big production number in the final reel, with all kinds of show dancing and some acrobatics. Also good as a sample of what a New York musical stage production of the day looked like.

In two color (red/green) Technicolor, though not always well preserved.
