Trivia

During the Artists and Models Ball scene, a number of actual artists and cartoonists are briefly shown drawing Sandra Storme for charity, and the works are actually theirs. These artists include Peter Arno, McClelland Barclay, Arthur William Brown, John LaGatta, Russell Patterson, and Rube Goldberg. Goldberg is best known for the crazy mechanical contraptions he would create for cartoons, now known as "Rube Goldbergs." (The popular children's game game Mouse Trap was based on a Goldberg cartoon.) Sondra Storme was the top paid model in Great Britain at the time. See more »

Amusing but very dated musical styles from '37 in Jack Benny film...
1 February 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Pleasant enough musical from Paramount featuring JACK BENNY as a man who must find a socialite model for the ARTISTS AND MODELS ball being sponsored by one of his wealthy clients (RICHARD ARLEN). A very young IDA LUPINO co-stars as a model who sees her big chance if she snags the queen of the ball title by making Arlen believe she's a socialite.

GAIL PATRICK, HEDDA HOPPER, JUDY CANOVA and GIL LAMB have featured supporting roles, while MARTHA RAYE and LOUIS ARMSTRONG have a Harlem themed specialty number (with Raye in blackface) that's better left unmentioned.

The songs are sprightly but the musical taste is strictly from the late '30s. Some of the jokes are amusing but many of them fall flat. DONALD MEEK gets some laughs as a doctor who mistakenly takes his own heartbeat for Benny's and predicts he shouldn't even be walking around.

It passes the time pleasantly enough for those who like these rather creaky musicals from the past before MGM took over with their splashy Technicolored musicals. One of the hit songs, "Whispers in the Dark," (nominated for an Oscar) is sung by Connee Boswell who sings the entire number in dim lighting so that her features are barely even visible.

Some good moments, but a very uneven hodge podge of comedy and music.
