That Walker girl can't put it over on me. I'll sue for damages and get them unless you stop the program.
[Barging into the room, extremely flustered]
Wait! Wait! Sh... she was hungry. She had to eat.
Get outa here.
Who had to eat? What?
Judy Walker. She had to eat his apartment. No, I, I mean she had to move into his food. No, I mean...
She had to forge my name?
Certainly. She couldn't forge her own! She was desperate. The landlord wouldn't listen to her music. No, I mean, I mean she ...

You can find this miserable waste of celluloid in those bargain basement 20 movies for $6 type of sets. Some of those films are really good! But not this one.
If you purchase one of those sets, please skip over this movie. If I can save one person from wasting 53 minutes of their life, this posting will be worth it.
Where o where did republic come up with this poor excuse for a cast? There are no obscure names here, obscure suggesting they were once well known. No has-beens, suggesting actors once had a decent career. The best thing I can say about the leads is that they looked pretty good. I can't comment on the acting since there wasn't any acting. There was some over acting from that annoying second rate Allen Jenkins type character - so incredibly unfunny. The leads were just a waist of space
and they couldn't sing either - and this was a musical. In fact, not
one of them could even so much as carry a tune. I really hated the male lead's voice which was just a lot of bad vibrato.
There was only a couple of songs. None of them good.
So we are down to a bad attempt at comedy (writing and acting), terrible music, non existent direction, and putrid acting. Did I mention the horrid attempt at comedy yet? No charm, no fun, no nothing.
Other than that, it was great.
Shame on you, Republic Pictures. Stay out of the musical business.
Do not watch this film.
