Not a great movie, but worth watching once if you're in the right mood, 7 August 2014
Author: richard-1787 (richard@berrong.fr) from United States

There are lots of problems with this movie that pull it down.

The biggest, for me, is that it is, in part, a musical, but the songs are all instantly forgettable and very simplistic. It's a shame, because Mary Ellis had a good voice, and was a beautiful woman. If she had been given the sort of material Grace Moore or Jeannette MacDonald or even Lily Pons were being given then at other studios, she could have done some memorable work.

The strongest performer here, as in many of the movies in which she appeared, is the character actress Jesse Ralph. She makes her character come alive in a way none of the others does.

Ida Lupino, as a blonde, does not stand out here. Tulio Caraminati wasn't a good actor, and without good material, as is the case here, he makes no impression.

The plot is obvious, and you can see everything coming a mile away.

I enjoyed watching Ellis and Ralph. The rest was pretty much a wash for me.
