I have seen quite a number of Paramount musicals from the 1930s and it has to be said that it just wasn't their forte.The lead is Charlie Ruggles,and though i like him,he does tend to rely on some rather tiresome mannerisms.Ben Blue is in support and we get a lot of what i suppose would have been his vaudeville routine,which is not really that funny.The two juvenile leads are both forgotten actors.The musical score is fairly indifferent.Given that there are not many good vocalists they introduce Kenny Baker for one song.He doesn't have much competition bearing in mind Phil Harris tries to sing a couple of songs.None of the musical numbers are memorable either in their conception or staging.RKO ,Warners and MGM were far better at musicals in the thirties.
