It's love at first sight for singer John Craddock and Jane Blodgett who meet while John is seeking a radio job with the "Blodgett Dog Busqiit Hour," and John learns that the sponsor is Jane father, Warren Blodgett, an avid souvenir and antiques collector. John gets himself in bad with Blodgett when he accidentally ruins a deal in which Blodgett was attempting to acquire a bed post for his collection. To break up the romance, Blodgett and his wife take Jane to Switzerland, where Blodgett has his heart set on obtaining a jealously-guarded cowbell. John has followed the family. Ere long, following a mountain climbing expedition that gives the mountain people a chance to sing with John, the latter and Blodgett and, ultimately, Jane find themselves in a Swiss jail.

Tepid musical comedy
29 June 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I bought this film because i thought that the pairing of Charles Ruggles and Mary Boland would be irresistibly funny.How wrong could i be.This is a tepid lacklustre affair with very little going for it.The main joke so far as Charles Ruggles character is concerned is that he collects bedposts of famous figures.When he goes on holiday to Switzerland he collects cowbells.In the leading role is Lannie Ross.I had never heard of him before which is not surprising on the basis of his performance in this film.Obviously the bosses at Paramount must have thought the same as there are not many credits to his name in the IMB biography.It is of interest to see Ann Southern early in her career.There are some musical numbers which are fairly unmemorable although the number at the finale is reasonably well staged and at least means the film ends on a relatively high note.
