Mainly for fans of Alice Faye and Patsy Kelly!
28 November 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie is for fans of Alice Faye and Patsy Kelly, and probably film collectors. The movie isn't the greatest, but every studio now and then makes films so actors and actresses have something to do. This movie is what you call a "B" movie. The singing of Alice Faye keeps you watching, the music and dancing is a most, especially if you wanna see how nightclubs, songs, dancing, and life was like in the mid-1930s. Patsy Kelly a great, forgotten comic, keeps you smiling and laughing with her quick one-liners and wisecracks. Patsy Kelly was a skilled, natural comic, she could give Lucille Ball, Martha Raye, Jean Arthur, June Allyson, Ann Sothern, and Carole Lombard a run for their money. All of them were great, but Patsy Kelly had a style of their own. She could also sing and dance. Their were many great female comics, more then men in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Patsy Kelly is a treat.

But, some of the forgotten men were The Ritz Brothers are a funny, dancing team, their what you call musical comedy. When Daryll Zanuck saw them in a nightclub he signed them quickly. Basically the movie is about Joan Warren-Alice Faye, who wants to make it, but she doesn't want to be something she's not to make it, but her agent will do anything, anything for her to make it, and while he's doing it they run into all kinds of "drama" but through it all the songs, music, dancing prevail. Great movie if you can catch it on tv.
