Quotes

Cornelia Wheelwright aka Miss White: You know something, Mr Amory? I just discovered America. Imagine that, at my age.
James 'Jim': You discovered what?
Cornelia Wheelwright aka Miss White: America! What it's all about. Where else could it happen that a couple of youngsters like that would refuse to take money simply because they hadn't earned it? Where they don't want to live on Easy Street unless they build their own home? Ah, there they go, bless their hearts. You know, it's youngsters like that that make you have faith in the future.

A throwaway song
11 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't a great movie, though Priscilla Lane is (as usual) better than her material.

But, that said, I was struck with the vocal precision of Nan Wynn in "Who Is in Your Dreams Tonight". Her control was exquisite.

It is amazing to me how very, very good even minor singers were in the 1940's. No, she is not a truly great singer, and I am not a huge fan of 1940's singing. Many later singers and many of her contemporaries were more compelling with weaker vocal skills. (I lean toward Peggy Lee, Chris Connor and Susannah McCorkle on the jazz side.)

But, damn! Who among popular singers exhibits this level of technical skills today. It's a bit like the absence of workmanship in modern manufactured goods.
