Storyline

Katharine Hilliard, mousy dean of a stuffy music school, meets and is insulted by swing band leader Barry Clayton on a train. To "show" him she takes a friend's advice, removes her glasses, and puts on a designer gown. Naturally, she becomes gorgeous. Soon, both Barry and crooner Jimmy Hale are after her, and she finds herself in the midst of triangles and misunderstandings. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Haymes Showcase
16 June 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Plot-- A very plain faculty woman gets a glamor makeover, thrusting her suddenly onto the pop music scene and a bunch of new suitors.

I had to chuckle at the passing remark where Jimmy (Haymes) says he's dieting so he can get skinny—an obvious reference to Sinatra, then the big bobby-sox idol. The film's a Haymes showcase. He gets to croon a number of tunes in a highly pleasing manner. As an actor, he's a boyish figure, likable but without much charisma. Too bad his career ended after getting mixed up with draft-dodging issues. The movie's pleasant enough without being anything special. James gets to do more acting than conducting; plus the band selections are mediocre, at best. O'Hara certainly looks the part of a Cinderella after the glamor make-over, and even gets to shake a leg along with the acrobatic dancers. Still, her specialty was drama, causing me to wonder where TCF's many music queens like Grable were, besides sitting in the back of a taxi. All in all, it's a decent little 40's musical in vivid candy-box colors. But I can't help thinking the movie could have used more bounce and less talky plot.
