The interest is in the editing of the musical numbers
19 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot, characters, and acting in this movie are undistinguished and easily forgettable.

What I found different and interesting was the editing in some of the (few) musical numbers. In particular the opening of the movie, which cuts from one example to the next of people dealing with the cold in New York City. In a minor way, it was reminiscent of the opening Song of Paris number in Rouben Mamoulian's very clever Maurice Chevalier/Jeanette MacDonald movie *Love Me Tonight*, which had been released the year before by Paramount.

There is also a love duet, of sorts, on the ocean liner that cuts from Phil Harris singing (sort of) the melody to German and Italian immigrants singing (much better) the same tune to different words.

In between those few moments, there's a lot of clichéd drivel. The fact that it is a pre-code movie only means that we get to see two women in their lingerie more often than in dresses. Not much to titillate you, I'm afraid.

Phil Harris doesn't sing well in this movie - you'd never guess this was the voice of Balou in The Jungle Book - and doesn't make a convincing leading man.

In short, a mostly forgettable movie with some interesting editing.
