Sorry. Anyways, I just saw this, it was pretty good-pretty serious plotline of aging actor Adolphe Menjou, his estranged daughter Leeds and his trying to make it back onto Broadway while hiding her existence from the press-gets undermined somewhat by the oddly large roles of Snerd and McCarthy. They are funny-but it's kinda like sticking Fozzie Bear and Grover into the middle of a 'A Brilliant Mind'...maybe not something you would see now but then? It was par for the chorus.
Fine character actors-George Murphy, young Anne Sheriden, etc all add to the mix. I liked it, it's an interesting period piece if nothing else.
