Storyline

Farmer Tommy and his girl Jane come in from the country for a night at the Hollywood Trocadero. There, they meet Chuck, Hollywoods Number One press agent, and his Girl Friday, Daisie. Hearing of the hardships imposed down on the farm by the war-related labor shortage, Chuck offers the help of his clients, movie star Gilda Parker, heavyweight boxer Canvas, and Eddie Le Baron and his whole orchestra, to help harvest the crops. Other than a mild romance between Tommy and Gilda, sparked by Chuck hoping for publicity, the crops get harvested in between musical interludes by The Radio Rogues, The Vigilantes, Sunny Fox and the Le Baron orchestra.

Rather Goofy Musical Comedy
2 May 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This rather goofy musical comedy begins fairly well, but soon gets too silly and implausible to maintain interest, and it ends up not really being very good. It starts off with a bunch of celebrities deciding to head to the country to help out some farmers, and from there on in, it only gets less believable, with all kinds of unlikely developments. It does have an energy from the cast that a lot of B-films lack, but you'd still need a much better cast than this to make the idea work at all. The script is erratic, and it includes a few decent lines, but it also has a lot of really corny jokes. Overall, "Harvest Melody" is inoffensive, but it just gets too ridiculous to be worth recommending.
