Frothy little musical, maybe a bit dated
gerdeen-1 from United States
1 January 2011
I would call this a musical. It has only a few songs, but then again,
it's a fairly short movie. It's reasonably pleasant, though no one
would call it great.
I suspect "Where Did You Get That Girl?" is so little known because
star Helen Parrish is not well enough remembered. She was beautiful and
very talented, but died young.
The story is about a swing band and a female vocalist (Parrish) trying
to break into the big time. Gangsters get involved, and there are lots
of comic mix-ups until everything is resolved. If you like Leon Errol's
unsubtle brand of humor, you'll get some laughs. (He's the bald guy
with the perpetually harried expression.)
The title song will probably seem familiar. It was written decades
before this movie by Bert Kalmar and Harry Puck. Later, in 1950, it was
used as the opening number in "Three Little Words," the biopic about
Kalmar's collaboration with Harry Ruby.
