The previous two reviewers do a very good job of detailing this film. It has greater historical value now than entertainment value because the type of humor --- radio and vaudeville--- are long gone and the stars like Ladd and Hutton and Lake and Crosby don't mean that much now. Leonard Maltin labeled it a Bomb. It's no masterpiece, but that's a gross injustice. Wonder which intern came up with that? Leonard needs to look at it himself. My guess is that it appealed to older viewers even at the time of its release 1945, the end of WWII. And it has a certain ethnic charm as well that will puzzle today's audiences. But a bomb? We are producing more bombs per season now than we were in 1945 with far less historic value. I shutter to think what Maltin's intern of 2075 will have to say about The Lone Ranger and Hangover 3. Worth a peek if you like old movies.
