Trivia

Alice Faye recorded a commercial version of the enduring "I Feel a Song Coming On" (music by Jimmy McHugh, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and George Oppenheimer), a tune which Alice shared in the film with Frances Langford and Patsy Kelly. The American Record Company decided not to issue Miss Faye's rendition, and eventually, the masters were disposed of. Another unreleased effort, a remake of Miss Faye's solo in the picture, "Speaking Confidentially" (note: Mr. Oppenheimer received no writing credit here) was spared from junking and now can be heard on two Alice Faye CD collections: "The Complete ARC & Brunswick Sides" from Sony, and "You'll Never Know" from Living Era.

Showcase for fans of classic radio
18 November 2006 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

Three adorable but out of work and homeless women try to win $100 in amateur contest on the radio, but when Susan (Frances Langford) passes out from lack of food, the prize goes to supremely confident and good-looking band leader Tops (George Raft). Once he really hears them sing, however, he brings them on board with his band. And by working them day and night brings them success with their own radio program. But his hyper-strict rules have Dixie (Alice Faye) and Daphne (Patsy Kelly) chafing for some freedom. Though Susan has quietly fallen for Tops, she goes along with the girls' scheme to buck his authority and possibly ruin his show.

Sure it's not much of a plot, but this is a good-natured showcase for a host of talents and great wisecracks from Patsy Kelly. The girls are fun, Faye and particularly Langford get great solos. Langford makes "I'm in the Mood for Love" a standard. Raft, besides looking cool, gets to do a little dancing. Harry Barris has some rousing if brief little vocal ditties. And truly marvelous is uncredited singer James Miller, who takes over in the middle of the extended "I Feel a Song Coming On" number.

If you're a fan of old-time radio you'll recognize all the corny exchanges and weird acts on the "gong show" radio program and maybe try to sing like a chicken yourself.
