Did You Know?


When Bing Crosby was cast, he requested another song be added. However, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart had already returned to New York. The song, "It's Easy To Remember", was composed by the duo back east and they then sent a demo record back to Hollywood. It wound up becoming the film's biggest hit. See more »

Rare Crosby Action/Drama/Comedy - Plus Fields!
27 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Have been trying for years to find a copy of this one. Saw it a few times and enjoyed it more each viewing when it was on TV back in 60s Los Angeles. Crosby playing the 'Killer' Col Steele/Tom Grayson is a totally different Bing at times, although he does manage to belt out a few tunes. If you liked Gail Patrick in 'My Man Godfrey' you'll also enjoy her in a very similar role here, as the sister who does not appreciate a good man. But the real treat is Fields as the riverboat captain. He's only a supporting character here but his scenes with wooden Indians and his recollection about shooting off a man's nose are hilarious. FIND IT IF YOU CAN AND ENJOY!
