Interesting 'Musical-Comedy' with very little music.
28 July 2002 | by (New York City, NY U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is a musical comedy with hardly any songs, but is still interesting to watch because of its style. Outside of Phil Harris, none of the other 'leads' sing a note. Many of the songs are 'talked' by uncredited performers, and parts of the film are spoken in verse. The use of sound effects(train whistles, telegraph keys) are cleverly incorporated into the songs, creating an interesting approach to music-making. Helen Mack is very appealing as the female lead, with Charlie Ruggles fun to watch as he bumbles his way through the film. Fans of Phil Harris from his Disney cartoon voices('The Jungle Book', 'Robin Hood') will find him an attractive leading man. All in all, an oddity in the musical-comedy vein, but worth a viewing.
