mediocre musical based on radio feud
29 July 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film is based on the radio feud between orchestra leader Ben Bernie and newspaper columnist WalterWinchell.Mitchell was a good friend of Fox production head Darryl Zanuck which might explain the existence of this film.It is difficult to decide which is worse,the acting of Bernie and Winchell,the presumably dubbed singing of Simon or the screenplay.If that was not enough of an impediment the musical numbers are undistinguished and staged without any flair.There are some decent talents such as Bert Lahr and Joan Davis buried in this mess.The fact that mine is the first review indicates how long forgotten are the leads and this film.
