The credits appear printed on stage curtains. As the title appears, Anna Neagle comes out from behind the curtain, sits to the left of the stage and sings the title song, while different curtains are rolled out, each containing new credits. See more »
Having read the negative comments regarding this film, I can only say that these people are expecting too much. I found this film to be a delightful and funny comedy featuring many great character players from the past. Especially good was ZaSu Pitts, who was reprising her role from the 1930 original film, now lost. As to the negative comments regarding Anna Neagle, what"s not to like? I find her to be a competent actress, singer and dancer as well as being extremely attractive. All in all, not a bad film, especially for the $1.00 I shelled out for the DVD. Also hilarious in the film was Eve Arden, whose presence uplifts any film that she happens to be in.
