Storyline

Polly, an amiable wisecracking piano teacher, becomes involved with some shady music publishers. She also happens to be infatuated with her music loving dentist Henry--who is not quite as romantically inclined as she. Polly manages to ensnare her room mate Eileen, Eileen's fiance Jimmy, and Henry in some shenanigans involving the rights to the song "Kansas City Kitty". The comedy is mixed with several up-tempo novelty tunes from the big band era. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Trivia

The line in which Jimmy ('Bob Crosby') says he's had trouble saving money because of "some family trouble with horses" is an in-joke reference to Bob's brother, Bing Crosby, who owned a stable of racing horses that almost never did well. See more »

Pleasant Programmer
6 July 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Bouncy little programmer thanks to a lively turn from comedienne Joan Davis (Polly). She's a piano teacher turned music publisher with a mad crush on her dentist, of all people. Of course, complications ensue of the romantic and even the business kind. But whenever the pace slows, Davis kicks in with a bit of funny business. Catch her mad meal with the ditzy Oscar (Willis) that puts a whole new slant on chicken pot pie. In fact, her rubbery face and physical grace suggest a distaff version of slapsticker Red Skelton whose film career was also taking off. Nice support from Jane Frazee handling the glamour department; plus, a novelty appearance by Les Gotcher (later of the Pied Pipers) as the singing swami. Nothing special here, just an amusingly tuneful 70-minutes, courtesy Columbia Pictures.
