Calling Dennis Morgan!
28 October 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Jack Carson is teamed up with Robert Hutton in this Warners farce about two would-be songwriters. But while it looks good on paper, the two male leads lack any particular chemistry when together: it's Jack Carson who sings the songs while Hutton plays the piano.

This looks a great deal like one of the Carson-Morgan pairings of the era, but the substitution of Hutton for Morgan robs tremendous energy from the proceedings, as Carson plays a top banana with not much of a bunch -- although Janis Paige does a nice minor variation on the Jane Wyman comedy character -- Miss Wyman had turned into a serious actress at this point and was not available to be in entertaining vehicles -- or, alas, not so entertaining. It's movies like this that show how good Carson and Morgan were together.
