longer, slower -paced episode of Burns & Allen show
Fun with George Burns & Gracie Allen! One of the three movies on the "Best Of Burns & Allen" DVD from Universal Studios. Opens with the sheriff trying to shut down the carnival and Gracie singing "Here Comes Cookie" , which is also the title of one of the other films on the DVD.... Co-stars Dixie Lee, who was married to Bing Crosby for 20 years, and singer Joe Morrison, who didn't seem to stay in Hollywood for too long. He stopped appearing in films couple years after making this one, but does a decent job singing "My Heart is an Open Book" during his job interview with Mr. Heinrich (played by Lee Kohlmar, born in 1873!) The plot here kind of goes around the mulberry bush, not sure where it wants to go. Maybe they should have invited WC Fields to be in this one too, since half of Fields' films were about carnivals or vaudeville shows. Another odd connection - Morrison also made "The Old Fashioned Way" with WC Fields; Fields appeared with Burns & Allen in "Six of a Kind" in 1934. George and Gracie come back into "Love in Bloom" now and then to do a few of their jokes... it feels like they found a script, and added themselves into it. It's OK, but it's no Shakespeare. Its a story of falling in love with someone from the other side of the tracks.
