Storyline

The stuffy manager of lovely opera singer Vicki Cassel and her uncle, a classical conductor, is determined to close down the noisy nightclub that's next door to the Cassels' home. The club's owners--Steve, a handsome ladies man, Jeff, his clownish sidekick--hatch a plan to keep the club open. Steve arranges to meet--and woo--Vicki and then invite her and her uncle to the club. When Vicki's snobbish aunt and the manager discover that Vicki now favors popular music to the classics, they arrange to get the club closed. But that doesn't keep Steve and Jeff down. Instead they decide to put on a Broadway show if they can get a backer. They find their "angel" in Vicki's uncle who agrees to finance the show only if Vicki is the leading lady. But once again, Vicki's aunt and manager may be the spoiler in everyone's plans. Written by Daniel Bubbeo

WB musical comedy? Where's the laughs.
24 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

What can be said about this WB boxoffice hit of 1946? The word inconsequential comes to mind. The formula for the WB musical is in full effect here, slight, fluffy story, plain and unsubtle vaudeville pastiche and affable leading men with slightly jarring crooning voices, a couple of hit songs by the top writers of the day and the best of them in the WB movies, impressively photographed, lit and well executed musical numbers to match the songs. If this is your cup of tea, so be it. Carson and Morgan do have a Crosby/hope chemistry and were supposed to be WB answer to the Road movies. They made a couple more but the success waned creating the end of the team.
