Storyline

Anna Zador is a secretary who's been working for 6 years at Count Willie Palaffi's bank. Every day, she rides to work on her bike and places flowers on Willie's desk, but Willie (the Budapest playboy) doesn't know that she exists. "Whiskers", noticing Anna to be a sweet and beautiful woman, believes she would be the perfect wife for Willie. He insists that Marika (Willie's personal secretary) invite Anna to Willie's costume birthday party - she does so reluctantly for she wants to marry Willie. Marika, knowing Anna is low on cash, offers to help her get a costume. At the party, everyone is dressed elegantly, while Anna is in a simple Angel's outfit. Willie, feeling sorry for her, asks her to dance, but when he sees the guests laughing at them, he makes an excuse and goes upstairs. Upstairs, Willie falls asleep and dreams that an Angel named Brigitta comes to earth to marry him. On their wedding night, Brigitta loses her wings to Willie's delight. He is less delighted when her ... Written by Kelly

Surreal Delight
17 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy star in this "modern" musical that showcases MacDonald's comic abilities. Surreal 40s musical seem to be making fun of 40s fashions even as they were in current vogue. Eye-popping costumes and sets (yes B&W) add to the surreal, dreamlike quality of the entire film. Several good songs enliven the film, with the "Twinkle in Your Eye" number a total highlight, including a fun jitterbug number between MacDonald and Binnie Barnes. Also in the HUGE cast are Edward Everett Horton, Reginal Owen, Mona Maris, Douglas Dumbrille and Anne Jeffreys. Also to been seen in extended bit parts are Esther Dale, Almira Sessions, Grace Hayle, Gertrude Hoffman, Rafaela Ottiano, Odette Myrtile, Cecil Cunningham and many others.

Great fun and nice to see the wonderful MacDonald in her jitterbug/vamp routines. She could do it all.
