Storyline

The singing/dancing Angel sisters, Nancy (Dorothy Lamour), Bobby (Betty Hutton), Josie (Diana Lynn) and Patti (Mimi Chandler), aren't interested in performing together, and this plays havoc with the plans of Pop Angel (Raymond Walburn) to buy a soy bean farm. They do accept an offer of ten dollars to sing at a dubious night club on the edge of town where a band led by Happy Marshall (Fred MacMurray) is playing. Bobby takes the ten dollars and runs it up to $190 at the dice table. Happy hits on Nancy but she rebuffs him. He doesn't have the money to pay his band and borrows the gambling winnings from Bobby on the pretext that he will give her a job with his band. Bobby discovers the next day that Happy has hastily departed for New York. The girls follow to a night club where he is working and, after an audition, the manager is willing to give Happy a contract if the girls will sing with his band.

Hutton Steals The Show
17 March 2002 | by (Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

Even though she is billed third behind Lamour and MacMurray, Betty Hutton walks away with the picture. The plot is as old as the hills but the by play of the four Angel sisters is very amusing.

But the reason to watch the film is Betty Hutton. She is adorable in this film, has a couple of funny novelty musical numbers in addition to the ones she sings with her "sisters" and does a drunk scene that is one of the most hilarious that I have ever seen. Lamour had to do one later in the film and I felt sorry for her having to follow Hutton's performance.
