When Hollywood was trying to make Alice a musical Jean Harlow
12 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Negligible low budget very early Alice Faye musical which is in terrible shape. The picture is full of scratches, very washed out and over-bright so that it's rather hard on the eyes of the viewer. This is from the period where the studio was still trying to push Alice as a musical Jean Harlow so she looks awful with too much makeup and ridiculously thin and distracting eyebrows. As for the plot, it's the old saw about a girl from the sticks looking for her big break and the down and outer who helps her get it. Still Alice sings well and the view of Hollywood it presents is interesting in a historical aspect. But if you're just looking for an enjoyable Alice Faye musical go for one of her later films where the production values were higher and she was presented in a more flattering way
