You cant help but like Dorothy Lee and the music.
22 April 2000 | by (Streetsboro,Ohio) – See all my reviews

This rare film is a must to see if you are a Dorothy Lee fan. She was the last of the flappers and was adorable as Peggy. The story used in the film was plot number seven but 2 cute tunes make you forget that and Morton Downey's voice will blow the wax right out of your ears. News paper hats and army surplus cloths worn by Fred Waring's band will give you an idea of the budget provided for this film and I wont mention the dancing if you don't but its a piece of history I'm glad I didn't miss.
