A fine lost treasure from UNIVERSAL. A must for musical fans.
1 July 2010 | by (Palm Springs) – See all my reviews

A real joy and big surprise of entertainment. I couldn't imagine a "B" Universal musical fantasy from the 40's holding my interest but was I shocked to find it funny, moving and musically A-1. Peggy Ryan is fabulous as the grand daughter of crotchety old Gene Lockart (wonderful in the role) and daughter of the lovely June Vincent. Jack Oakie has one of his best roles as the deceased dad who comes back after 15 years to right a few wrongs and protect his daughter. Don't miss this one if it is ever on Television. It should definitely have a DVD release. Please UNIVERSAL, open those vaults and release some of your hidden classics.
