This biography of Ernest Ball has numerous historical inaccuracies but none are serious enough to detract from the music. Dick Haymes was a popular singer in the 1940s and appeared in several movies without ever achieving movie-star status. June Haver is beautiful and has several good numbers. Monty Woolley is very good in a semi-comedic role and Anthony Quinn makes a good foil for him. The story tends to drag in spots, but there is enough good music to make watching worth while. The songs include "Boy Of Mine", "Bessie With The Bustle" and (of course) "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling". Watch it for the music and don't worry all that much about the story.
