fun low budget comedy/musical
22 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a HUGE fan of actress Patricia Ellis I HAD to see this film and tho its meager budget shows from start to finish I enjoyed it nonetheless. The songs are nothing to write home about and leading man Warren Hull is certainly bland but the comedy bits and the fact that the lovely miss Ellis is in nearly the entire picture from start to finish makes it worth a look! Most of the films she made during her earlier days at Warner Bros she is second lead or less and spends precious little time on screen so it was a big treat for me, and she looked great! some of the supporting players are quite good as well. i found this on DVD on ebay for around $3.00 and consider it money well-spent!
