If it weren't for Billie and Louis it would be forgettable.
13 May 2005 | by (United states) – See all my reviews

This is a corny movie lets get that straight right off the bat. It is redeemed when Billie opens her mouth. If you never heard Billie Talk then this is the movie for you. She looks as if shes bored to death but what a job she does on, "Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans, The Blues Are Brewing and my favorite, Goodbye to storyville" Pops is pops and hes good as gold. But how this movie drags on! You will find yourself waiting for the scenes with Billie or Louis or the other jazz folk. The actress, Dorthy Patrick, I swear she never made another movie after this. At least i hope so! If you get this on DVD you luck up you get Billie and dukes symphony in black 1935 and a short with Louis. I guess that makes up for the awful film!
