Trivia

American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films 1931-1940 lists Ruth Etting as one of The Goldwyn Girls, but she does not appear in this film. AFI apparently confused her with Ruth Eddings, who does appear. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Eddie Cantor sings "There's Nothing Too Good For My Baby" in blackface, the sign above the loud-speakers on the outside is misspelled: "GLORIFIYNG THE AMERICAN DOUGHNUT". See more »

music, dance and comedy surround intrigue..
14 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie begins with the finest five minutes, principally consisting of a busby Berkeley dance number performed in the girls gymnasium. as they dance their daily exercise routine to stay slim and attractive (they work in a bakery), Charlotte greenwood sings "bend down sister". but leading up to that is a little gem that lasts less than 30 seconds in which a man comes in to order a cake. i won't "spoil" it for you by describing any further. suffice it to say, in my opinion of course, this could well be the best twenty eight seconds ever put on film. you see, inasmuch as it really has nothing whatever to do with the rest of the movie, it was simply put there for the sake of laughter. and it succeeds. o how it succeeds.

i would hope to see this film on television one day again. but hope springs eternal. it is apparently not available on DVD.
