Get over the ridiculous, nonsensical plot and go back to the 1930's sense of comedy when humor was corny. "The Music Man's" Pert Kelton plays against type as the boss's daffy wife who makes Gracie Allen appear like Einstein. If you've seen her in other 1930's movies, she's always the tough blowsy broad who takes no nonsense, but here, she's got the smarts of a feather duster. A variety of other musical acts appear as well, including a hillbilly act who gets on on the plot when Hughes arranges for herself to be kidnapped in order to get Paige back, just as the Swedish ex flues back to marry him just so she can stay in the country.
There are moments of severe belly laughs and a few that are absolute groaners. I actually would like to see the missing 10 minutes not on the Alpha DVD to see what was considered too extraneous to remain for re-releases or later TV packaging. It most likely concerned what happened with Andre, heading back to New York, as that part of the plot is never resolved. Nevertheless, this is an easy (not even) hour time passer that won't test your brain.
