Storyline

A French-Canadian girl is a champion bronc rider and is also a nightclub singer. An ambitious young man sees her act one night and is struck by her talent, realizing that she is good enough to become a Broadway star. He convinces her to accompany him to New York, where she indeed does become a Broadway star. However, the young man finds himself being squeezed out by greedy Broadway producers who see the talented young girl as their own personal gold mine. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Trivia

When originally released, the first reel, which runs approximately seven minutes, including the title credits, was in 2-strip Magnacolor; reviewers at the time commented on the poor quality of the color, registration problems, and lack of focus; in surviving prints, this sequence is in black and white, with a replaced title card that includes a 1951 copyright statement.

One Good Laugh Anyway!
29 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Advertised as a "comedy", this little movie certainly starts off that way and features at least one good laugh before the story changes pace and decides to become a heavy romantic drama instead. Indeed the last half of the movie is a sort of cheapjack Fanny Brice story, an impression re-inforced by both the stage antics and the appearance of Fifi D'Orsay. When not being upstaged by the irrepressible D'Orsay, the other players do what they can to save the day, particularly the exotic Astrid Allwyn who easily walks away with the movie's acting honors.

The film's minuscule production values are considerably augmented by loads of footage from the stock library. Most of this material (the Calgary Stampede, high-stepping chorus cuties from long forgotten stage musicals) is much more interesting and entertaining than the movie itself.
