Pleasant musical comedy with a good cast and little plot stars Alice Faye, Joan Davis, and Marjroie Weaver as star-struck gals in New York trying to break into show biz. They have a no-good manager (Fred Allen) and some admirers (Gregory Ratoff, Gypsy Rose Lee, Tony Martin) as well as Jimmy Durante--for extra measure. Some funny if unmemorable songs include Faye's "Who Stole the Jam" and Durante's "Hot Potata." Snappy and fast paced but not very original. Davis and Allen and are always good.
Eddie Collins is funny as the captain. Mary Treen, Andrew Tombes, Charles Wilson, Lon Chaney, Jr. (as a cop), and the Brian Sisters co-star.
