Get Hep to Love was a pretty enjoyable musical comedy but I was disappointed to not see Donald O'Connor dancing that much
30 June 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Because this was one of Donald O'Connor's films he made at Universal with Peggy Ryan and Gloria Jean, I expected to see him dancing up a storm. Unfortunately, he only dances at the end with Gloria and it's not really much. Ms. Ryan does her stuff at a malt shop and sings a swingin' tune as well so there's that! Ms. Jean does her operatic songs to mostly fine effect though I'm not really a fan of her music. Her rival (Cora Sue Collins) sings something I recognize as the song -"Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms"- that Bugs Bunny plays in his cartoons-instigated to do so by foes Yosemite Sam or Daffy Duck-in which he misses the note that's supposed to blow him up! Oh, and another lady I recognize is Jane Frazee who I previously saw singing in Buck Privates and Hellzapoppin'. She does not do that here. Anyway, Get Hep to Love was pretty entertaining so, yeah, that's a recommendation. P.S. Though I've been watching the Blondie movie series of late, I didn't recognize the mailman in those entries as a character named Mr. Hardwicke in this movie-Irving Bacon.
