Storyline

Vaudevillians supporting the musical efforts of aging Hollywood star Diane de Valle decide to head for Tinseltown themselves when de Valle's high salary and low drawing power cancel the revue. Managing to land roles in a de Valle musical movie, perky Peggy is rescued from the chorus line by the tricks of her boyfriend Jack, who uses bravado to usurp de Valle's role in favor of Peggy, who is more suited to the bouncy musical. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Alice Faye and Bebe Daniels are good...
3 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

in this otherwise trite musical. But it's interesting to see Faye at the brassy beginning of her starring career abd Daniels (at 34) playing the aging actress with a secret. This is one of Daniels' last Hollywood films. Supporting cast is ok.
