antics of mitchell and durant ruin this film
15 January 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I thought that this film would be one of the typical Fox musicals that they churned out in their 30s,alas no.Apart from one number near the beginning there is nothing.Nor is there much in the way of plot.I can only suppose that in order to get round this problem Fox decided to engage the services of Mitchell & Durant to fill in the gaps.I had fortunately never seen this pair before and i will make sure that i never see them again.I suppose the only way to describe them was an unsubtle version of The Three Sttoges.The "humour" of the dreadful duo seem to comprise of finding as many different variations as they could of hitting each other.For anyone interested in Alice Faye this film is a waste of time.As for Lew Ayres how far had he fallen from All Quiet to have to appear in this mess.Given that M & D are on screen for the majority of time this film is only for their fans or more likely fan.Otherwise give this a miss.
