Hoot of a Drag Comedy - prototype for Some Like It Hot
This is a forgotten GEM of a comedy - only 53 minutes in length it's a delightful romp. With the lead character (played by Johnny Downs) in drag for most of the film, we have to say he makes a good. The film is full of good looking guys. The opening production number with a whole chorus in drag sets the tone. The story is slight - an all boys school sends its class president in drag to infiltrate an all girls school that has publicly slighted them. The purpose - to get the goods on them in some way. The delightful score earned two Oscar noms - Best Score and Best Song. It has songstress Frances Langford in the "real" female lead with Harry Langdon, Noah Beery Jr. and Alan Hale Jr. in comic support. The whole thing is a delightful fizz that leaves one smiling. Don't miss it!!!
