Another Warner B-film makes it to TCM...
11 October 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A fired talent agent (DONALD WOODS) promotes an aspiring actress/singer to stardom. Where have you heard that one before? Woods is the brash, fast-talking agent (a departure from his usual placid roles), and Jeanne Madden is the girl he goes to great pains to promote. Frankly, Miss Madden is a singer with a not so spectacular voice and nothing about her suggests future stardom.

But it's the kind of plot Warner Bros. seemed to dust off occasionally in the future, with sparkling results. (Think MY DREAM IS YOURS with Doris Day, Jack Carson and Eve Arden or IT'S A GREAT FEELING, again with Day and Carson).

ROBERT PAIGE has a small role as a studio executive and FRED LAWRENCE does a nice job as the studio's matinée idol. But it's strictly a trifle nicely played by DONALD WOODS but ill served by a lackluster leading lady.
