The USA that we enjoy seeing and admiring
27 April 2006 | by (adelaide) – See all my reviews

I can only hope that there are still Americans like those in this film in today,s USA. The movie gives us one hour of light popular musical enjoyment. John Payne as usual presents a very likable and professional acting performance. Mae Clarke is pretty and charming and I have fond memories of her in other films. Franklin Pangborne contributes his unique comedy talents. It is good to visit a past era when fine human qualities of USA life were presented to the world via the Movies and universally admired.. Of course, much that was unpleasant was rarely shown but at least we can take a break from the worries of modern life and just relax and enjoy one hour of escape.
