As of 10 October 2015 this is possibly the oldest film in which two non-child stars, Joan Leslie and Olivia de Havilland (notwithstanding the fact that she was playing herself) are still alive. Leslie died on October 12 2015. See more »
In one of the scenes where Eddie Cantor, dressed as an American Indian, is being chased by other men dressed as American Indians, the film negative has been flipped - you can see the signs on store windows are clearly backward/mirror images of what they are supposed to read. See more »
I thank my lucky stars that I saw this great, feel good film!
Anyone who has a heart can find something they like about this great picture. During World War II, I imagine that people really needed their spirits lifted and they were by a lot of different things, in this case by Hollywood. This film is great fare even today if you like music and good singing, comedy, and even bad singing provided mostly by dramatic stars! There are quite a few laughs and the storyline is not bad; even tho a bit silly, this film provides a lot of pleasure. This film is about love and caring and sharing! Thanks to all the stars!
