A tuneful comedy that's worth a look.
20 April 1999 | by (Pine Grove, California) – See all my reviews

This is one of those comedies that I usually go for, since it involves a deception that the audience is in on, but many in the film are not. James Melton (a popular singing radio star at the time) goes to work in the music department of the store he inherited to learn about the business and the people. Only his lawyers and a couple of executives (who are trying to bankrupt him so they can buy the store cheaply) know he's the big boss. The comedy is excellent, with Hugh Herbert, ZaSu Pitts, Allen Jenkins, Walter Catlett, and Nat Pendleton all contributing bits that are very funny. Jenkins has the best lines, and his tongue-twister about his name had me in stitches. There are five good songs, sung by Melton and his love interest, Patricia Ellis, and even ZaSu Pitts sings in this one. I've seen the movie 3 times and it seemed to get better with each viewing.
