Al is a down on his luck promoter who is thinking of taking the final bow when he meets Jan, the singing porter. He sees something in Jan so he signs him to a contract. Al works odd jobs to pay for Jan's singing lessons and drops the idea of Opera when he learns that it will take years. He has him sing in a nightclub and from there it is up. But Jan soon starts missing lessons and rehearsals and hits the bottle so the partnership between Al and Jan ends. Soon Jan is also unemployed and Al pays the professor to take him to Italy to see if he will be able to sing Opera. Written by Tony Fontana <>

It appeared as if someone was punishing Pat O'Brien by casting him in this turkey.
6 December 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When you think of musicals, you would never think of Pat O'Brien. He never demonstrated any musical aptitude in films and here he looks totally out of place as a guy trying to promote a high-brow singer (James Melton). What's more out of place, other than Melton's operatic warbling, are the terrible amateur-hour acts that are interspersed throughout the film. The worst is probably the God-awful gospel group that did more to encourage atheism than any other act in film history!! In addition to the non-singer O'Brien is non-singer Frank McHugh--who is more pushy and loud than normal (not that he ever played subtle). It's easy to hate him in this film--which is a shame, as he's generally a likable sort of sidekick.

The film has a thin story, some crazy production numbers (choreographed by Busby Berkeley), a lot of annoying singing and, well, that's really about all. I love Pat O'Brien but somehow he got lost amidst the cacophony. As you might guess, I am not a huge fan of musicals--but if I do see one, I'd prefer it be a lot better than this one (such as "42nd Street" or any of the Astaire-Rogers films). Pretty dull and hard on the ears.
