Charming, silly but fun -comedy musical
19 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is the synopsis for TCM---this can be seen on Youtube and other internet related movie sights--Very charming and Funny with Ann Sothern, Jack Haley and Roger Pryor.

Theatrical producer George S. Harmon refuses to produce a musical satire by struggling young actor George Thorne based on the life of Napoleon. He gives back to Thorne what he thinks is his play, but what he actually gives the young actor is a five-act tragedy about Napoleon by someone named "Henry," who has invited the producer to visit him at his farm. Thorne and his friends, Sunshine and Doc Parks, are broke and have no prospects for the summer, so they pretend to be the producer and his entourage and accept the playwright's offer. They live at the farm for two weeks, when Linda, Henry's sister, with whom Thorne has fallen in love, questions why they have not begun production on the play. Thorne claims that there are no theaters available to try out the play, so Henry's grandmother mortgages her farm for three-thousand dollars and converts the barn into a theater. Thorne finally reads the play, and it is terrible. He then tells Linda there are no actors available, but she offers up a variety of local talent. With his back to the wall, Thorne begins to produce his musical satire, telling Henry that it is simply a rewrite of his play. He hopes to have the real Harmon see the play and buy it. On opening night, the production is a hit until a rainstorm strikes, the roof begins to leak and all the displaced animals come in to reclaim their barn. Thorne's plans go further awry when he learns that Harmon never arrived at the theater. When Thorne is finally asked if he is going to buy the play, he admits that he is an imposter. The actor and his friends are forced to leave town, but, at the train station, Thorne runs into the real Harmon, who has come into town for another try-out. When Harmon refuses to see their play, Thorne then pretends to be the producer once more and cancels the other play. Henry kidnaps the cast of the other play and locks them in his barn. Thorne then puts his satire on in its place. Harmon is furious when he arrives at the theater and discovers what has happened. At the first act curtain, he threatens to put the entire company in jail, but Thorne convinces him to let them continue with their production. Henry is cast as Napoleon, and every time the real producer looks at him, he becomes nervous and the audience thinks he is even funnier. The play is a huge success, and Thorne allows all to believe that Henry is its author. Harmon then buys the production as is, and Thorne is once again in Linda's good graces.
