Trivia

Re-issued in the early 1950's by Astor pictures, the film was retitled simply "Sensations" and in tiny letters on the title card was the disclaimer "Formerly titled Sensations of 1945". The old nitrate prints were used and the section of the main title that was changed was inserted thereby keeping the cost of the reissue to a minimum. See more »

Goofs

A routine theater projector is used to project a Cab Calloway short subject on a New York City billboard several blocks away. Because of the focus and intensity of light required, this would be an impossibility anywhere, let alone in a well-lit area like Times Square. See more »

Poor attempt at musical review
11 November 1999 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

Another of those flimsy stories coupled with most forgettable musical numbers. Powell and O'Keefe as battling publicists are quite forgettable. However, there are two shining moments. Hubert Castle is the most incredible tightrope walker you will ever see - his "drunken walk" on the wire has to be the most spectacular piece of balancing ever recorded on film. He has to be seen to be believed. The other is Sophie Tucker doing a turn near the end of the film. Her magnetism, her professionalism, her sheer talent at being herself - well, charisma is not learned - you have it or you don't. A great lesson for all would-be cabaret artists. A sad note: W.C. Fields in his last film cameo is completely forgettable.
