As good as I remembered from 1937.
10 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

I've been searching for this film ever since I started my personal film log about 16 years ago with the advent of the VCR and Cable. I saw it in a neighborhood theater in 1936 or '37 in Ohio or Missouri. Though I had forgotten all the story elements and principals, I distinctly remembered the character of Hammerschlogg the klepto -- Hugh Herbert, who I thought at the time must be the funniest man in the movies.

Herbert is still highly amusing, but on my recent rediscovery of the picture on cable, I was much more impressed by the magnificently effortless soaring tenor of James Melton. He had several great songs in this film, but his "Your Eyes Have Told Me So" left me with goose bumps!

The inane story line is no worse than the average musical, and the music and comedy elements more than make up for it. A very entertaining movie that I can recommend without reservation.
