Trouble is brewing on the set of the musical western, "The Texas Tornado". Nitvitch, the director, is having problems getting his leading lady to speak with a southern accent. When he inadvertently mentions in the Studio Canteen that he is looking for a replacement actress who can do a southern accent for the part, Nitvitch gets throes of aspiring young actresses clamoring at him. However, the one who catches his attention is Joan Mason, a true southerner who is working as a waitress in the canteen. Joan hopes to make the most of her starring opportunity. Written by
Academy-award nominated Short Subject. It's about director Nivitch (Fritz Feld) trying to shoot a Western but having nothing but trouble. He needs a girl with a Southern accent...and finds one working as a waitress in the studio restaurant. You can write the rest yourself.
This sounds pretty terrible but it's amusing. It's shot in Technicolor and has some pretty good songs and dances--the dances especially are designed to take advantage of the color. The acting is just OK--Kathryn Kane and Jerry Colonna are the leads. There are also some cameos from Warner Brothers stars in the restaurant. Among them, George Brent, Humphrey Bogart, Pat O'Brien--all in color and smiling for the cameras!
Nothing great but fun. Worth seeing.
