Nice Little Musical
10 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting backstage musical based on a long-running radio show. Myrt (Myrtle Vail) decides she's too old for the stage show she's in, so she bows out to manage the theatrical company once they find a new face. They find a girl, Marge (Donna Damerel--Vail's real-life daughter). They tour the sticks with the idea of taking the show to New York City.

The show's leading man (Eddie Foy, Jr.) falls for Marge but so does the show's backer (Thomas Jackson). The two men spar for Marge's favor amid a couple of not bad song numbers.

Not a bad little musical at all although the low budget shows. The stars are all quite good. There's also Marge's mother (Trixie Friganza), co-star Grace (Grace Hayes), and as crew member, Ted Healy and the Three Stooges. It's certainly an odd mix. The Stooges are billed here as Howard, Fine & Howard.

J. Farrell MacDonald and Bonnie Bonnell also co-star, and there's also Jimmy Conlin as the bum comic. Peter Lind Hayes is listed as an extra but I never spotted him.

The film's bot interesting character is possibly Clarence the very gay costume guy. He's played nicely by Ray Hedges (in his only film). I assume this character was from the radio show, pretty astonishing for a show that ran from 1931 to 1946.

The lively numbers include "Draggin' My Heels Around" and "What Is Sweeter than the Sweetness of I Love You." This one is certainly worth a look.
