Trivia

The radio broadcast of "The Battle of the Planets" which caused such a panic in this movie was clearly based on Orson Welles' broadcast of "The War of the Worlds" on 30 October 1938, which did cause a national panic. See more »

a great role for Frank Morgan
5 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a nice little musical that's just a lot of fun. Frank Morgan is outstanding as usual. The supporting cast, including Billie Burke, Sara Haydin,and Virginia Gray are all fine. Compared to today's movies with all the violence and cynicism, movies like Hullabaloo are wonderful escape mechanisms.
