A musical. Nothing special.

Everyone in this THE BLONDE FROM BROOKLYN has a scam, except the blonde from Brooklyn (Lynn Merrick). The soldier (Robert Stanton) musters out and wants to do a singing act as a southerner. He enlists the jukebox girl, who is the blonde from Brooklyn, to be his partner, a southern belle. She thus has her scam.

They meet a southerner, 'Colonel' Hubert Farnsworth, whose probably never was a colonel. He gave the blonde from Brooklyn her story, makes her the granddaughter of an old girlfriend from the South. It happens that the blonde from Brooklyn, as the fiction granddaughter of a real family, is heir to that family's fortune, and they spend the film trying to dodge the lawyer and the fraud charges which would ensue were she to accept the fortune. But she also cannot reveal that it's a scam, as then she and the soldier would lose their lucrative radio gig.

This was not the best film I've seen this year. It could well have been the worst, but that's a relative term. We watched the entire thing and my wife didn't mutter afterward, so if you like old pictures with song, you might go for it.
