Lillian Roth is great. Rest of the film stinks.
31 December 1998 | by ( – See all my reviews

This is the film version of the Ethel Merman Broadway hit.Not a very good film. Lillian Roth got a second chance to behave and make good in Hollywood with this one and she is the best thing about this dull mess. Good prints are rare because this is a FOX film and they don't give a damn about their past.

Look for young Vivian Vance (Ethel Mertz) in the Eadie Was a Lady Number . .. she get a chorus or two standing on the stairs. Very unexpected.

Buddy Rogers is not a very good actor but at least he's still alive!
