I'm always happy to see a movie with singer Art Jarrett, who was at the height of his radio & film popularity about 1933-4 and a personable tenor who always turned in a good performance. In Let's Fall In Love he sings the beautiful title song very early in the picture with a sweet- sounding female chorus.
Also watch for him in MGM's Dancing Lady with Joan Crawford & in the 1933 Paramount film Sitting Pretty. His voice is heard in 1934's MGM Hollywood Party singing in the animated segment called Hot Chocolate Soldiers. He was married to swimmer Elinor Holm, famous for the 1936 Berlin Olympics and 1939 Billy Rose Aquacade at the NY World's Fair. I believe Elinor later married Rose, after his failed marriage to "Funny Girl" Fanny Brice.
Star Ann Sothern is gorgeous and sings very well in Let's Fall In Love; no wonder she had such a long an successful Hollywood career. Though Columbia was neither big nor wealthy in 1933, they made this entertaining film which happily survives in 2009.
