She's the "Queen of Burlesque" with the Golden Rooster! She's "The Belle of the Bowery!"
Mrs. Ella Patterson:
Oh dear, dear. This is dreadful. This is really dreadful.
Mrs. Ella Patterson:
I'm so sorry.
Well, what's the matter with being "The Belle of the Bowery?" What's wrong with that?

Being a great fan of Lauritz Melchior, I was extremely delighted to be able to see the few movies he made in 40's last night on TCM. The four times he sings in the picture were, for me, extreme highlights, especially when he sang 'Morgenlich leuchtend im rosigem Schein'.
June Allyson was a delight and the act she did in the night club, left me laughing. Alot was based on her innocence and it worked great.
Kathryn Grayson was also a delight and the film was very clearly made to showcase her and Melchior. But even so, she did come out in glorious voice and made her and Allyson's characters people to care about.
Jimmy Durante was also a great treat as the club manager and hood, using like phraise: 'I don't know nothin' alot to make people do what he wanted.
To finalise this comment, for me it was Lauritz Melchior who steeled the show every time he was on the screen, but the story was good with a happy ending where everyone had what they wanted.
