A most entertaining musical film of the early teens with songwriters Calhoun & Harrigan, Jack Oakie and John Payne with singers Alice Faye and Betty Grable. Such great songs like "Harrigan", "K K KKATIE", and several good numbers. One of my favorite movies with all these stars. 20th Century Fox had the best in talent, and don't forget the fabulous Nicholson brothers; they tapped their flying feet all over the place! What a shame that black entertainers did not share the honors until 50 years later! Also, Billy Gilbert as the shiek was a momentous riot!
