A fictional-story film in which many of the people seen in it are using their real name portraying the character who shows up in this fictional film in a completely fictional-and-staged setting, which means their role name is their own name, and is not any combination of "Self": The fictional J. D. Forbes, head of the (fictional) Four Star Studios in Hollywood, informs his associate producers that business and attendance at Four Star Films has tanked, and changes must be made. J. D. has decided that the movie-going public has to be offered down-to-earth entertainment such as that offered by a band leader named Kay Kyser, who puts on a radio and-live theatre program called "The Kollege of Musical Knowledge," and Forbes dictates to his hirelings to "get me Kay Kyser."

If I could rate this movie higher than a 10, I would. May Robson does a wonderful job at playing Kay's Grandma. She has told Kay several times to "stay in his own back yard". Well, that is some good advice that we all should listen to. The musical scene that the gang does for Stacy Delmor, played by Adolf Menjou and Tom Village, played by Edward Everett Horton is a riot. Everyone should see this movie. It is timeless with it's puns, it's laughs and it's music. Sandra Sand played by Lucill Ball, well all I can say is that part suits Ms. Ball. I would say that out of all of the Kay Kyser films I have seen (few as they are) this one is my favorite. You'll have to watch this film to see exactly what I am talking about. To para-phrase one of Kay's other movies... "You'll Find Out"... do watch this when you can.
