Hutton is irritating
4 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

This story is boring. Georgina (Betty Hutton) keeps day-dreaming. The only cast members that are any good are Virginia Field who plays Hutton's sister and Walter Abel who plays her father. Abel delivers his lines comically and is at the opposite end of the acting spectrum to Hutton who drifts through the film in an annoying manner. Her speech pattern is very whiny and irritating. She has a couple of funny moments but it's just not good enough considering she is on screen for so long. There is an interesting section with a singing teacher that provides some top tips for those of you who want to learn to sing. I remembered a few of them from my days as a choir boy! Unfortunately, I can't say anything better than this film is dull.
