Trivia

The electricity bill for the Drum Dance scene was, according to some rumours in the region of $30,000. According to some sources 1,500 extras were used in the Drum Dance scene, making the costumes for them took almost a month. See more »

Goofs

During the 'drum dance' sequence there are three rows of huge drums all sounding together. The drum sticks on the front row are synchronized so that they all hit the drum at the same time. The drum sticks in the second and third rows are out of synch with the first row yet their sound is in synch. See more »

How did this happen?
16 July 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Take a major studio studio (MGM) celebrated for its musicals. Take a top director (Woody Van Dyke) known for his breezy direction of films like THE THIN MAN, SAN FRANCISCO and NAUGHTY MARIETTA, among many others. Take a handsome singing star (Nelson Eddy) who was the studio's biggest matinee idol at the time, getting more fan mail than Clark Gable. Take a charming young tap-dancing star (Eleanor Powell). Take a score by Cole Porter written especially for the picture, including `In the Still of the Night.' Add some popular supporting actors like Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, and Edna May Oliver, and, for those few who find a professional sneezer amusing, Billy Gilbert.

Take all these elements, spend a small fortune on sets and costumes, and turn out a picture which is among the worst ever made. It's inexplicable. The full-throated Eddy has been turned into a crooner, playing the world's oldest (36) West Point Cadet. Powell's dancing is sprightly but the big centerpiece number, danced on a series of huge drums, can only be called bizarre, Poor Frank Morgan is forced to do most of his performing with a ventriloquist's dummy. There are one or two cute scenes---Powell and Eddy obviously like each other---but mainly this picture is simply awful. What a waste.
