Storyline

In Oslo, Norway, Jenny (who loves stalwart Chris) enters a dance marathon to help her embezzler brother out of a jam; her actions cause misunderstanding and Chris flees to a far northern mining camp. In despair, Jenny signs up as a "picture bride" who by tragic irony is promised to Chris's brother Olaf...at that same mining camp. Then Chris's rival Alberto arrives on a polar dirigible expedition. Which brother will join his voyage, perhaps to doom? Very stylized. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

Only the edited 1937 re-release, running 67 minutes, with the original 2-strip Technicolor finale in black and white, was available for many years. But a complete print, running 79 minutes and including the Technicolor finale, survived at the George Eastman House. In 2011, it was run on Turner Classic Movies. See more »

Totally disastrous... a curio for Jeanette MacDonald fans ...
14 December 2011 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

It takes sterner stuff than mine to sit through this disastrous relic of a film that looks as if this was made during the silent film era--the acting by Jeanette and the rest of the cast is a holdover from silent film.

The few songs are forgettable and clumsily inserted into the plot, amounting to nothing at all. None of the actors are well-known aside from Jeanette who plays a heroine who is finally reunited with her long lost lover in the Yukon. No use going into details.

The final scenes involving a dirigible disaster are clunky and poorly edited with the most artificial looking icebergs (and icicles) ever filmed amid a snowbound exterior. And for some strange reason, color is used for this sequence alone. It doesn't help.

Neither color nor some feeble humor from Joe E. Brown is able to do anything to raise the level of this grotesque failure.

Not worth a watch--or a listen.
