Brown and Carney with great support from Ralph Edwards
Okay, so Brown and Carney WEREN'T Abbott and Costello. Nevertheless, their pictures are painless romps directed for maximum speed by Leslie (FIREMAN, SAVE MY CHILD) Goodwins. In RADIO STARS ON PARADE, the boys are ably assisted by lilting Frances Langford and a terrific supporting cast. But the real surprise is Ralph Edwards playing himself in a couple of TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES setpieces. Edwards was a masterful straight man and he does some great speed talk and double talk. Rufe Davis (PETTICOAT JUNCTION) also gets a chance to show off, singing "I'm the Sound Effects Man." Of course, there's the obligatory chase through the radio studio and the gags are well-paced if somewhat obvious. I could think of far worse ways to spend 70 minutes.
