If you can stand the music, this is a very cute movie
I caught about 3/4 of this movie last night on Turner Classics and I wish I had seen it from the beginning. I was so taken with Warner Baxter's performance - he is so cute when he performs on stage the first time, scratching and looking uncomfortable. Later when he reluctantly stars with Miss Barnes in an opera, dressed in this Renaissance type outfit complete with fake beard, he is just a delight to watch. I actually laughed out loud. The dialog is crisp and funny, Loretta Young is very appealing and the supporting actors are real characters. I would buy this movie and skip the music, except for the last song they do on the train.
