Disappointing mess
21 November 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

As a great fan of thirties musicals i watched this film in anticipation of an enjoyable 80 minutes.The writers on this are well known and i always rather like Jack Oakie.He always plays the same sort of character.Lots of ambition but never really achieves anything.This is the time of his career when he was the star rather than being the comedy support of actors such as John Payne.Well unfortunately i was sadly disappointed.The story was very derivative ,the comedy almost non existent and the delights of hearing Ben Bernie sing rather wore thin after a short time.the best thing about this film was Alison Skipworth.The music was OK.It has one evergreen "With My Eyes Wide Open" which is sung a number of times.
