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 »

misstatement in previous Comment
17 August 2008 | by (University of Illinois (USA).) – See all my reviews

On Oct. 4 2004, an interesting Comment by "John5th" contained a serious slip of the pen in the following sentence: "... we see a huge production number called Circus In The Sky featuring Sammy Kaye and his band and a host of circus acts all at the top of a skyscraper." Clearly, John5th intended to write "WOODY HERMAN" (who stars -- even sings! -- in several musical numbers in this film, and is prominently mentioned in the opening credits, along with Cab Calloway). And NOT Sammy Kaye (who doesn't appear at all, and isn't mentioned in the credits). If John5th is still reading this Commentary, I feel sure he'd make the correction himself. I tried 2 ways to contact John5th, but got no reply; he may have gone on to other interests. -- Prof Steven P Hill, Cinema Studies, University of Illinois.
