Did You Know?


Pat West is in studio records/casting call lists in the role of "Yodeler," but that role was played by Herman Bing. Some production charts and news items listed Betty Furness, Fuzzy Knight, Charles Waldron and Broderick O'Farrell as cast members, but they did not appear in the movie. See more »

Crazy Credits

Ted Lewis and His Orchestra is credited in a full frame right after the title page and before any other credit. They are not in the comprehensive listing later on in the credits. Because of this, IMDb policy is to list them first, and to fill in the rest of the credits afterward. See more »

Amusing bits but painfully unfunny cornball one-liners dominate the film...
19 May 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The man who provided Disney with the voice for Prince Charming in SNOW WHITE is the leading man here, HARRY STOCKWELL, father of Dean and Guy Stockwell. He's an unphotogenic man with a splendid voice, but it's easy to see why he never made it in films. He's totally unphotogenic and lacks whatever charisma is needed for stardom.

Stockwell and VIRGINIA BRUCE play aspiring singers who enter a radio contest, during which all the other acts are ridiculed and played strictly for laughs. Funniest bit of all is done by BILLY GILBERT who demonstrates why he played "Sneezy" in Disney's SNOW WHITE by doing a whole act based on his sneezing abilities.

Virginia Bruce is her usual bland self and the humor throughout depends on vaudeville one-liners that were corny even then. In other words, the witless script is a poor thing to endure for an hour and twenty minutes, cut drastically after a disastrous preview.

It's a curiosity. TED LEWIS is top-billed but gets brief footage--perhaps the victim of too many cuts.

Watchable but only at your own risk.
