Tame early talkie with practically no plot, just charm

Buddy Rogers and Nancy Carroll can't act or sing well here, but they don't for a minute let that fact stand in their way. They get by on their facial beauty, their charm and their obvious on screen chemistry. Jack Haley and Eugene Pallette are serviceable as the comic support. Who steals the show but a singing comedienne named Zelma O'Neal, playing Carroll's friend, Angie. Her facial expressions and timing are the whole show and she emerges as the only reason to see this slow moving, plotless relic of the early talkie era.

The early two-strip Technicolor is used unimaginatively (reds and greens predominate). Only five songs are retained from the original Broadway musical from which this is adapted. One became a standard (BUTTON UP YOUR OVERCOAT). The other four are A PEACH OF A PAIR, THEN I'LL HAVE TIME FOR YOU, I WANT TO BE BAD and IT MUST BE YOU.

Don Tomkins who plays a character named after a famous restaurateur (Dinty Moore) has a certain oddball charm and is facially quite striking. In fact all the young men and women in the cast are easy on the eyes.

Unfortunately, there is hardly any plot. It all takes place at a golfing country club. All the girls want Rogers and Carroll also sets her cap for him. She of course gets him after a little rivalry is resolved. That's it, folks. Hardly enough reason to sit through the 93 minutes it take to tell this non-tale. The direction is lethargic and in the end, only the charm of the leads and the talented O'Neal remain in the memory banks.

Seek this out only if you are a fan of early talkies, early Technicolor or the leads.
