Dancing Lessons Over the Radio?

9/10
Author: drednm from United States
21 August 2012

Edward Nugent is Jimmy, a dance-crazed guy who works only to take dance lessons. At a dance hall, he meets an heiress named Judy (Joan Marsh) who tells him she works there. After her grandfather pitches a fit, she runs away and gets a real job at the dance hall and becomes pals with Mabel (Isabel Jewell). Society pal Peyton Wells (Ben Lyon) knows about the secret but plays along.

When Jimmy pitches his dance lessons show to a radio executive, the idea bizarrely goes over. But as Jimmy and Judy put on their show, the grandfather uses his money to have the broadcast cut off. What will Jimmy and Judy do next? The closing dance sequence, showing all the different people tap dancing like mad is excellent. There's a cook dancing all over his kitchen, including on top of a stew pot. There's a crazed woman in her bedroom dancing up a storm. There's a portly middle-aged couple who throw back the rug and start tapping.

Ben Lyon, is a supporting role here had just about finished his American film career and was soon to move to England to revive it. Nugent, who had also been around since the silents, gets a chance to sing here as well as dance. Isabel Jewell steals all her scenes, and Joan Marsh is adequate.

Co-stars include Purnell Pratt, Vince Barnett, Lillian Harmer, James Burke, Herbert Rawlinson, Grace Hayle, Harry Bradley, and a very young Lloyd Bridges among the night club dancers.
