Tauber,Napier and Durante what a strange combination.
When I saw the cast list I wondered how it would turn out.Particularly when I also saw George Hayes as a police inspector.Alas it wasn't Gabby Hayes.My view of the film was hampered by the fact that the copy was only 63minutes long.so I assume that a lot of music had been cut out to make way for the plot.For some strange reason back in the 1930s this type of light operetta seemed to have some popularity with the cinema going public.Tauber had a great voice but wasn't the least bit cinematic and went on to marry his leading lady.Jimmy Durante seemed rather unusual casting for this film but he doesn't manage to overwhelm everyone as he can do.
