This should NOT be considered a Burns & Allen movie film.
This movie was packaged along with two other Burns & Allen films on one disk. However, despite Burns & Allen getting top billing, "Love in Bloom" really did NOT feature the comedy team, nor was it really much of a comedy. Instead, Dixie Lee and Joe Morrison were featured in the leading roles (despite the billing) and it was clearly a romantic musical--sort of like the stuff that Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy did during that same era. There were two major problems with this. First, I don't particularly like this style of film and I was expecting a comedy. Second, the Lee and Morrison were awfully bland--so even if I did like this sort of sappy drivel, I would be frustrated in watching it. As for Burns & Allen, they appeared here and there to do some comedy routines and sing--but the usual banter between George and Gracie was noticeably absent. Sorry, despite the generally good reviews and overall IMDb rating, I cannot recommend you see this one--it's just not good nor is it what you expect. In fact, audiences back in 1935 must have been equally frustrated with it.
