Typical of a PRC film--and that's NOT a compliment!
5 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Dixie Jamboree" is a film from PRC--a tiny production company that had a long track record of sub-par best. Tiny PRC made a ton of films that are rarely worth your time but fools like me watch them because we are crazy film buffs, I guess! The film is very much like "Showboat"....except "Showboat" was a good play and film. As for "Dixie Jamboree", it features lots of singing--but none of the singing (except for the black singers at the beginning) were any good and none of the songs were any good either. As for the acting, you know a film is in trouble when it relies on Frances Langford and Eddie Quillen! The only potential bright spots were Charles Butterworth and Guy Kibbee--who always provide some goofy support. But even here, they're not even close to being at their best because the material is just very limp. The bottom line is that the film is not terrible---just uniformly poor and dull. Forgettable in every way.

PS--You politically correct folks take note--this film WILL offend thanks to its patronizing treatment of the black actors throughout the movie. Typical of the times but still kind of sad.
