Republic B Musical
28 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Marlowe family has long supported a home for orphans named the Marlowe Memorial Home. The Marlowe family also owns a modern office building and one of their tenants is a agent/promoter of show business talent. Irene Marlowe (Ruth Terry) meets an employee of the agency (Johnny Downs) and the two come up with the idea of putting on a show to raise money for the orphanage.

There are many obstacles that must be overcome to get the show produced, including an unscrupulous couple who are syphoning funds from the Marlowe Estate. Johnny is smitten with Ruth Terry and their road to romance is likewise, bumpy.

This is a low budget B musical without anything spectacular going for it. Yet it manages to please in a number of ways. Johnny Downs and Ruth Terry are very talented and personable; Billy Gilbert and Vera Vague are good at providing laughs; and Elizabeth Risdon and Lester Matthews are always welcome to any cast.

My print is under the reissue title, Mania For Melody, and it runs the complete 70 minutes.
