Lack Of Flair In directing and choreography hampers film
29 May 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This was the first sound version of this hoary old chestnut but already it was the fourth film version.Jack Buchanan and the rest of the cast are poorly directed.there are some good tunes but they are woefully staged and filmed.They are often photographed in medium shot or medium close up.Just compare them to say "the Carioca","the continental" or "Lullaby of Broadway".All numbers which still linger in the memory.Here the numbers just seem to go on for ages with no particular purpose.The best things in this film are Lil Damita and Fred Emney.the sight of Emney trying a high step routine is definitely one to behold.The climax of this film is a sad comedic failure and about as unfunny as you could get.Not a memorable effort.
