"Sing, Baby, Sing" is a passable, sometimes alluring lightweight Fox musical starring Alice Faye, Gregory Ratoff, Patsy Kelly, Adolph Menjou, and introducing The Ritz Brothers. Faye is an aspiring singer/actress who becomes involved with a drunken Shakespearean actor Bruce Farraday(Menjou). Farraday becomes infatuated with Joan after seeing her one night in a nightclub. Joan's agent(Ratoff) sees this occasion as a way of advancing her showbiz career. Patsy Kelly provides good supporting role as Fiz, Joan's friend. The Ritz Brothers perform their often hilarious, often annoying shenanigans, interrupting the story for their routine comic acts. As the other user-comment has said, "Sing,Baby,Sing" is mainly for fans of Alice Faye. It is a good early role for Faye to shine and sparkle, but it is way below her best, most spirited musicals at Fox.
