Miriam Hopkins Is a Dynamo
28 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Miriam Hopkins is the whole show here as a nightclub singer who witnesses a murder and gets out of town. She ends up in Princeton, NJ and is taken in by students, Bing Crosby and Edward Nugent. They cut her hair and pass her off as Crosby's nephew. Meanwhile Bing falls for the dean's daughter, Kitty Carlisle and they sing "Love in Bloom" and "Straight from the Heart." Lots of plot twists but the film runs out of steam before it's over, still it's fun.

From the hotcha number Hopkins sings and dances during the opening credits to the sequence where the movie studio head and crew descend on Princeton to put Hopkins in the movies, she proves herself a delightful comedienne.

Despite first billing, Crosby has little to do outside of his songs. Hopkins steals every scene she's in (not unusual) and is terrific in the singing and dancing numbers. Carlisle is solid in her second film and so is the underrated Nugent.

Henry Stephenson, Henry Kolker, George Barbier, Warrem Hymer, Lynne Overman, Judith Allen, Maude Turner Gordon, Vince Barnett co-star.

Basically remade in 1942 with Judy Canova and again in 1955 with Betty Grable.
