Too Many Musicals
10 October 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Too many musicals like this killed the market for movie musicals for a few years. This mildly racy effort from the newly assembled RKO has a couple of decent songs with tunes written by Oscar Levant and the beautiful Olive Borden going for it. There's a bit of piquancy added as Olive doesn't tell her folks she is married so she can continue to sponge on them.

There are several issues, mostly related to the sound quality and some of the performances, which seem more suitable to the stage than to the movie screen. Also, this plays like a three-act, three-set play, with only enough exteriors shot to open it up slightly. In short, this is another forgettable film musical from 1929 that will be a pleasant time waster for people like me who enjoy such antiques, but not much more than that.
