Storyline

Multi-millionaire Ezra Ounce wants to start a campaign against 'filthy' forms of entertainment, like Broadway-Shows. He comes to his relatives families and makes them members of his morale-boosting campaign. But Jimmy, another relative is producing a show, starring Ezra's niece Barbara. But he had bad luck with his backer, this person has given him an invalid check. Another of his victims, the show-girl Mabel has the idea of blackmailing Horace, Barbara's father, whom she has met before in a slightly compromising situation to get the money. Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

very fine
11 March 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I like I have only eyes for you and I remember quite well Dick Powell singing this song. To day when I listen Frank Sinatra singing this melody I see in my mind Dick Powell singing it. All the films of Busby Berkeley I saw were very good, in those times there was no dubbing a we enjoy very much with the original American versions of the films, Notwhithstanding my short age, I was working in the broadcast station of Barcelona, People of Warner Bros brought us ogiginal records of music of the Warner, Movies among them was a trailer with yhe song I have only eyes for you, then I was able to play the record as many times as I wanted, enjoying very much with the song.
