Trivia

Bob Burns was known for a bizarre musical instrument that he invented and which he plays in this film. Basically a long tube with a cone on the end called a "bazooka". GIs in WW2 took the name for the rocket firing anti-tank weapon since it resembled the instrument. See more »

Gold Rush Gypsy
8 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Colorful minor musical is of interest mostly as a chance to get a glimpse of Gypsy Rose Lee in one of her few movie appearances. She offers a pleasant performance, nothing special but full of personality. It also has some eye popping costumes in vivid Technicolor and Gypsy's hair is done up in some truly gravity defying styles throughout. Dinah Shore doesn't make much of an impression, her high sweet thin voice is put to service on some forgettable songs but in the acting department she is woeful. Fortunately the supporting cast of old pros is there to prop up the shaky leads with Florence Bates, usually cast as stuffy matrons, fun as Gypsy's flashy traveling companion.
