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.
