I recently went to the UCLA Film Archives and viewed this film as part of a project and found it to be an interesting curio and a rather fun film to watch. Arthur Lake is the young male lead, who after a failed fraternity initiation and a fall out with his girl, becomes a radio sensation after he fills in for the star after he is knocked out in a robbery. Arthur Lake, whose voice leaves something to be desired, loses his voice whenever it rains, which is not a bad thing since his voice is already squeaky. Dixie Lee is his girl, a professional singer, yet only sings once at the beginning of the film, and one wonders why she isn't given any other numbers. John Wayne, plays Roy, Arthur Lake's fraternity brother, and its a fairly decent supporting part, with quite a bit of dialogue in the first half of the film. The print was a bit jumpy but well worth seeing if interested in seeing early musical curios.
The 23 year old John Wayne handles leadership well in this film. There are moments where he proves that he can express deep feeling to lift him above the status of a personality. He demonstrates good horsemanship too, and hones his tools ready for subsequent productions.
