Trivia

Frank Churchill and Paul Francis Webster (as Paul F. Webster) are credited onscreen for "Songs of Italy." However, that title refers to a medley of three Italian songs written by others. So we assume that both men were musical arrangers. They did publish a song, "Blue Italian Waters," which may have been played as background music. See more »

Goofs

Slicker the Seal is credited onscreen as "Himself," but he is called "Julius" in the film. See more »

formulaic film making
7 May 2008 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is indicative of the lack of interest in Bobby Breen that despite the fact that this film was shown last July on TCM it has not yet received 5 votes and this is its first review.It has to be said that by the time this film was made Breen was about to enter those troublesome times for any child star,namely the teens.This film actually has a very good supporting cast not least of whom are Leo Carillio and Lee Patrick.Funny to think that after making such a minor film as this she went on to co star in The Maltese falcon for which she is rightly remembered.There is little to say about this film save that Breen sings a lot,Patrick comes in with her snotty brat of a son and causes strife were there was none but after a few tears being shed all ends up happily.To be honest this is only worth watching if you are a fan of Breen or any of the stars.
